In this small article I would like to talk about such an unusual admission, as the fertilizing seedlings with a solution of hydrogen peroxide. In recent years, this method has grown in popularity, so it's time to talk about it.
Since I myself is not the first practice this kind of watering, I try to explain everything in detail, but only in the case.
Is it dangerous for seedlings peroxide
When we talk about watering seedlings with hydrogen peroxide, we mean weakly concentrated solution. Peroxide in water is so small that it can not harm the plants.
To prepare the dressing, we need 3% solution, which is sold at any pharmacy without a prescription. Despite the fact that the concentration is initially quite small, we will raise plenty of water.
Therefore, fear for their seedlings is not necessary. The hydrogen peroxide in such low concentrations is harmless.
Why water the peroxide solution
A solution of hydrogen peroxide favorably with simple and even rainwater.
- Firstly, it has a disinfecting effect. For example, for tomato seedlings, it will be an excellent prevention of Phytophthora;
- Secondly, it saturates the earth and the plant itself with oxygen. This is especially useful if the seedlings are in a small poorly ventilated apartment.
Moreover, hydrogen peroxide is one of the available drugs. You can find it in every pharmacy, and it costs about 30 rubles.
What crops will be useful peroxide
Dressing based on hydrogen peroxide, normally watered seedlings of tomato and peppers. For these crops it is excellent prevention of Phytophthora and other fungal diseases.
However, such a solution would be useful for all popular plants that we plant in his dacha.
How to make watering
To feed the seedlings of hydrogen peroxide is not difficult. When watering, we simply replace the water in the peroxide solution. He is as follows.
- It is necessary to take a two-liter glass jar filled with water for irrigation;
- Add to it 4 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide;
- Thoroughly mix a large spoon;
That's all our infusion is ready, you can start watering. I do it with the help of the usual rubber enema. I type a little water from the cans and watering each plant. A rather neat and dosed.
Besides classical irrigating seedlings can be sprayed with a solution of the same concentration. The procedure should be repeated no more than twice a week.
When and what results you can expect
Some gardeners write about the miraculous properties of this method, allegedly seedlings obtained twice stronger and healthier. But, in my practice, I have never watched this. I try to describe your results.
After 2-3 days the seedlings becomes livelier as if poured juice. The color of the leaves become a little greener and brighter. In appearance plants look healthy and well-groomed.
