Methods of using hydrogen peroxide for indoor and garden plants, video instruction


Hydrogen peroxide - an assistant for indoor plants!

Hydrogen peroxide is an amazing tool that can be used for treatment (read more about this). But it turns out that the use of peroxide is even wider and more diverse. It can help the seeds of different plants to germinate faster and better!

Many gardeners and flower lovers know that some plants are difficult to grow from seed. Including trees, shrubs, indoor plants. Peroxide will come to the rescue.

The fact is that the seeds contain inhibitors that inhibit germination. In nature, they are destroyed in the process of natural oxidation. In agriculture, seed soaking in hydrochloric acid solution is used to increase the germination rate. Hydrogen peroxide can be used to oxidize the inhibitors at home, it is a completely safe method, since only water remains in the decomposition of the peroxide.

Fragrant pelargonium, compact sansevieria, pots and hydrogen peroxide.

So, hydrogen peroxide is used for rapid seed germination. For this we need a 4% solution of hydrogen peroxide. You can soak the seeds of tomatoes, cabbage, beets, flowers, houseplants. Different seeds are soaked for different periods of time: cabbage - for 12 hours, tomatoes and beets - for 24 hours. Peroxide, as it were, loosens the seed coat, saturates them with oxygen, which is released during its decomposition.

You can use a common solution that is suitable for seeds of any crop: a tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution is diluted in 0.5 liters of water.

After soaking the seeds, rinse under running water and dry (or immediately put in the ground).

Hydrogen peroxide solution can be used for the prevention of diseases in trees and shrubs. Peroxide and water are taken in the ratio of 1:32, watering the plants with this solution.

Peroxide - great antiseptic. Ideal for disinfecting seeds (for example, adeniums, 5-10 minutes soaking is enough). Sprouts after such seed treatment are stronger and more resistant to diseases.

Peroxide suitable for seed treatment any plants. The time of soaking of seeds with a hard shell can be increased up to a day.

Peroxide can be added to water for irrigation and spraying plants, it has a stimulating effect, maintains a healthy state of plants, increases oxygen metabolism, disinfects the soil. For irrigation and spraying diluted 1 tbsp. spoon of peroxide in 1 liter of water. Use periodically.

Peroxide is also a great way. combat spider mite. Ideal for indoor plants. 2 tbsp. spoon peroxide diluted in 1 liter of water and spray the plants several times at intervals of 5-7 days. The peroxide concentration for pest control can be increased to 50 ml per 1 liter of water (especially if you process it with garden plants).

Peroxide is indispensable for processing and disinfecting cuts during any operations on plants both at home and in the garden.

Ammonia for the protection and fertilization of plants

Another proven and the same simple and affordable tool that helps care for the plants - ammonia (ammonia). He, like peroxide, is sold in a pharmacy.

Ammonia is a liquid, ammonia is a gas. Ammonia hydrate is formed from ammonia, and when the resulting hydrate is dissolved with water, we get exactly the composition, which is called liquid ammonia. Onshatyr alcohol - an aqueous solution of ammonium hydroxide, a colorless transparent liquid with a pungent odor.

Suitable for growing tomatoes, flowers, any flower and vegetable crops.

Such dressings are very fond of lilies, clematis, geraniums, cucumbers. In 1 liter of water you need to dissolve 10-15 ml of ammonia, use this solution for irrigation. Your plants will thank you for caring for a healthy look and beautiful flowering. An additional plus: this watering also eliminates mosquitoes, midges, and you get fertilized flowers. During the procedure, of course, you will not get away from the pungent smell of ammonia, but this is not for long, and it is not harmful at all.

The fact is that ammonium hydroxide is important nitrogen source.

Outside ammonia can be used in the form of lotions for insect bites, to disinfect the skin of the hands.

Ammonia water is used in gardening, as well as in everyday life as a universal cleaner. Calcium is used in the fight against aphids, for the treatment of landings from onion flies and for plant nutrition.

From aphids need 4 tbsp. l drug diluted in 20 liters of water. Add some washing powder or liquid soap to the solution for better adhesion. Use the solution for spraying plants.

From the ants in the house also helps ammonia! Add 100 ml of ammonia to 1 l of water and rinse all the kitchen furniture, floor and walls where ants appear with this solution. The aroma disappears in a few minutes, but the ants will feel it for a long time, stop going into the house.

From mosquitoes and midges it is enough to sprinkle the resting place with ammonia (you can use it with a solution in water), midges and mosquitoes will be gone for a long time.

Ways to use hydrogen peroxide

Peroxide is a well-known drug that is sold in pharmacies, which has no color and smell, is well soluble in water.

Emaciated Stepanenko: I weighed 108, and now 65. At night she drank warm. Read more here.

Pharmacies usually offer a substance at a concentration of 3%. It differs from water by the presence of an additional oxygen atom, which is quickly lost by the substance. The released oxygen easily aerates into the ground.

The antiseptic effects of the liquid are well known. It also disinfects, cleans, has a healing effect. There is no toxicity in the solution, but care is needed in the application, since too high a concentration of the agent causes irritation of the mucous membranes and skin.

Tip! Plants peroxide bring great benefits.

Seed germination

For the germination of seeds have always used a variety of drugs to ensure good growth of the plant, increase resistance to diseases. Peroxide provides all this even more effectively than potassium permanganate.

I was able to get rid of ARTHROSIS AND OSTEOCHONDROSIS PER MONTH! Operations are not needed. Read more here.

Peroxide allows you to pickle the seeds, for this take a 3% solution and soak the seeds in it for 30 minutes. After that, the seeds need to be washed and dried. This procedure will allow you to kill the pathogenic flora that may form on the surface of the planting material. As a result, the seeds germinate quickly, the plants grow well, become very strong, branchy.

Is it possible to water seedlings and adult plants with peroxide?

According to numerous reviews we can say that watering young shoots of plants with peroxide significantly strengthens their roots, increases resistance to disease, disinfects the soil.

The released oxygen prevents the processes of decay, protects the roots with an excess of moisture. This is very important when planting plants in a viscous or clay soil, in which natural drainage is difficult. Small roots are simply burned by the released oxygen, which will completely save the entire plant from rotting.

Tip! You can water the peroxide plants under the root, and their spraying is allowed.

Watering seedlings

  • 20 drops of 3% peroxide,
  • dissolved in 1 liter of water.

Water this solution is necessary at the root.

Recommend infrequent watering, it is enough to do it once a week.

Higher concentration is not allowed. Too thin roots of young seedlings simply collapse under the action of a high dose of oxidant.

Watering adult plants

Peroxide is very useful for adult plants, they tolerate it excellently. Watering should be regular.

  • 2 ml of peroxide 3% (up to 2 tbsp. L),
  • 1 liter of water.

If watering is rare, you can increase the dose of funds, taking 2 tbsp. l peroxide per liter of water.

Protection against diseases of indoor plants

The emergence of the root rot of indoor plants requires decisive action. The use of peroxide will solve the problem.

Proper use of peroxide allows for a few tricks to completely remove the pathogenic flora, to provide excellent conditions for the growth of the roots.

The composition of the solution used is as follows:

  • Peroxide 3% -2 tbsp. spoons.
  • Water - 1 liter.
  • Phosphoric fertilizer.

It is important to ensure that all pathogens are removed from the pot. To do this, the water from the pot must flow freely. This is easy to achieve, the pot just needs to be lifted on a stand so that it does not stand in the water.

Combating aquarium plant diseases

Peroxide, introduced into the aquarium water, is very useful. It quickly copes with rotten parts of plants, purifies water, destroys harmful bacteria. The peroxide concentration should be low: 2.5 ml of peroxide will be required for 10 liters of water. Increase the concentration should be gradually.

First, the peroxide is mixed with water outside the aquarium, then the diluted solution is gradually poured into the aquarium. The undiluted substance to be injected directly into the aquarium is unacceptable, as it significantly harms the inhabitants of the aquarium.

Fertilizer for garden and indoor plants

Practically for any plants peroxide is an excellent fertilizer. No especially useful elements are brought into the soil, but there is an excellent aeration of the earth, the roots begin to more intensively assimilate mineral compounds and nutrients.

Simultaneous watering and fertilizing with peroxide create an excellent result. The solution is prepared from the calculation:

No special irrigation techniques are provided.

How to use hydrogen peroxide for plants

To begin, find out how peroxide works. From the side you do not distinguish it from water, and the formulas are similar to H2O2 and H2O.

They differ only in an additional oxygen atom, water resembles the formula of hydrogen peroxide during a thunderstorm, when rain is enriched with ozone. That is why rainwater is essential and useful for vegetation.

H2O2 quickly loses the second oxygen atom, this process is interesting to us. The lost atom acts as an oxidizing agent, it can destroy pests, it fights infectious and fungal diseases.

Video - peroxide for garden

The soil after the procedures with the use of peroxide is saturated with oxygen. If H2O2 is added to water of doubtful quality, it will make water more suitable for watering or spraying.

Thanks to its amazing properties, peroxide has found wide application in working with plants:

  • Let's start from the beginning, with the seeds! You can successfully use a solution of hydrogen peroxide instead of potassium permanganate, which is used for seed treatment. It is necessary to soak the seeds in a 10% solution for 20 minutes. Then they are washed with clean water and dried.
  • Another 0.4% solution is used for the early germination of seeds. To do this, seeds are soaked for 12 hours, or 24, if it is carrots, beets, parsley (those crops that do not germinate for a long time). After the procedure, the seeds should be well dried.
  • Next, peroxide is processed seedlings. Solutions of different concentrations are used for irrigation and irrigation. Some gardeners generally refuse ordinary water.
  • H2O2 is used for indoor plants and garden.
  • Water with peroxide can cure many diseases of plants and encourage them, if the seemingly seedlings seem sluggish and lifeless. For example, a bucket of water with a couple of tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and 40 drops of iodine will help to deal with blight. If you add a little alcohol to a weak peroxide solution and irrigate the stems and leaves, then you can get rid of the scythes, aphids, and the worm.
  • H2O2 is used for disinfection, for the prevention of the appearance of parasites.

Peroxide watering plants

There are many different opinions on how to water the seedlings and flowers. Some lovers of greens recommend using H2O2 solutions each time and generally refuse ordinary water, some add only a few drops of healing solution once a week. We will choose the middle ground.

If you regularly water the flowers or beds with a similar solution, keep the proportions around 20 drops per liter. It does not harm the vegetation and will help her to cheer up, get rid of parasites and infections, saturate with oxygen. If you plan to water the plants with the above solution less often, then add two tablespoons per liter.

In addition to the benefits that we have already described, the H2O2 solution rescues the plants flooded with ordinary water, or rather their roots, from rotting. Also the solution helps to cheer up the flowers, the land in which they have not changed for a long time.

Spraying peroxide plants

Sprinkle greens can be the same solution as you did for watering. Namely, 1.5-2 tablespoons per liter. The procedure is recommended once every 2-3 days.

Spraying the plant, do not forget to lift the leaves and spray them from the outside. Also pay attention to the stems.

Regular spraying will help your seedlings and flowers to remain attractive, strong. The leaves will eventually become more saturated green. A sickly, weak plants will find a new, healthy life.

H2O2 for aquarium plants

In addition to land plants, hydrogen peroxide is also useful for aquariums. It nourishes it with oxygen and helps oxidize polyps, bacteria, algae, which are undesirable and which can harm the health of the inhabitants of the aquarium.

To use peroxide (2.5 ml per 10 liters), it is diluted about 10-15 times and only then slowly added to the aquarium through the filter stream. Not diluted solution can burn the living creatures. After the procedure, about half of the water should be replaced, as there will be a lot of dead organic matter in the aquarium and it may start to rot.

Hydrogen peroxide for plants, it is a budget, natural and very effective means, you can buy it at any pharmacy. Replace artificial fertilizers with peroxide and then on the windowsills you will have healthy, beautiful flowers, and on the table is delicious and eco-friendly food from your garden.

Seed dressing before planting

Good seed material - the key to a generous harvest. That is why it is recommended to prepare the seeds before planting in the ground. One of the stages of preparation will be getting rid of pathogenic bacteria and microorganisms. Proven and reliable method of disinfection - seed treatment with hydrogen peroxide before sowing. However, the use of any disinfector raises the question of its safety. Therefore, further on how this means is used is applicable to plants from a scientific point of view.

The formula of hydrogen peroxide differs from the formula of water by the presence of an oxygen atom. In a molecule, the oxygen bonds are unstable, as a result of which it is unstable, loses an oxygen atom and, accordingly, is destroyed into absolutely safe oxygen and water. Oxygen acts as an oxidizing agent, destroying the cells of microorganisms, as a result of which most of the harmful spores and pathogens die. Plant immunity increases. There are a number of ways to treat seeds with hydrogen peroxide:

  1. Place the seeds in a 10% solution. The ratio of seeds to water should be about 1: 1. Most types of seeds are recommended to be kept in this way for 12 hours. The exceptions are tomato, eggplant, beets, which should be soaked for about 24 hours.
  2. In a 10% solution, place the seeds, and then rinse in running water.
  3. Soak the seeds in H2O2 0.4% for 12 hours.
  4. Heat up the 3% composition to 35-40 degrees, pour seeds into it for 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly. After that dry.
  5. Sprinkle the seeds out of the spray with a 30% solution and allow to dry.

Growth stimulator for seeds

Methods of soaking seeds in hydrogen peroxide before planting, in addition to disinfecting, also have a stimulating effect. There are inhibitors in the seeds that prevent them from germinating. In nature, they are destroyed in the process of oxidation by natural means.

Experiments have shown that the percentage of germination of tomatoes after such processing can reach 90%, corn - 95%. After soaking the seeds of cabbage shoots appear earlier than usual from 2 to 7 days.

To develop seedling root system

Before planting, it is recommended to treat the seedlings with hydrogen peroxide. Active oxygen kills bacteria, and also promotes growth, saturating tissues with oxygen. You can both spray the seedlings, and put it in a solution. It reanimates dried roots, and also best of all helps to prevent the appearance of root rot. Take 3 ml of the drug per liter of water and put the seedlings there for the required time. If you use the method as a growth promoter, enough days. If the plant is sick, you should use the solution until complete recovery, updating it. Due to saturation of plant tissues with oxygen, their immunity increases, cuttings root faster.

It is noticed that after the treatment of tomato seedlings with peroxide on ripe fruits, there are significantly fewer cracks.

Полив и опрыскивание растений

Широко применение перекиси водорода для комнатных растений. На ее основе можно приготовить растворы для полива и опрыскивания. Универсальный рецепт — 20 мл 3% H2O2 на литр воды. Putting it in the soil contributes to its greater aeration, since the active oxygen ion is released, combines with another atom and forms a stable oxygen molecule. Plants get it in larger quantities than before the procedure.

Acting as an oxidizing agent, it kills pathogenic bacteria, decay and mold that form in the soil. There are recommendations how to water the flowers with hydrogen peroxide, namely 2-3 times a week. Scientists have determined that it is through this time that after the solution is introduced into the soil, it breaks down into water and oxygen.

The solution can revive fading crops. Also, hydrogen peroxide solution is indispensable for soils that receive excess moisture. Plants get plenty of water and little oxygen, so they just have nothing to breathe. When a hydrogen peroxide solution is introduced into such a ground, the root system receives additional oxygen when the H2O2 molecule is decomposed. Watering is advised to hold no more than once a week.

You can spray the sprouts with a solution, it will give the leaves more oxygen and kill the germs. Growth and crop yields will increase.

Fertilizer application

With regular watering of the soil with hydrogen peroxide solution, the roots of the plants are healthy, additional aeration of the soil occurs. As a fertilizer, it is enough to use a mixture of a teaspoon of H2O2 per liter of water. This fertilizer is safe, because a few days after use, it decomposes into safe oxygen and water.

Pest and disease prevention

The drug can be used not only to combat plant diseases, but also for the prevention of such. When transplanting, it is necessary to treat the pot and roots with a solution of hydrogen peroxide in the ratio of 1 tablespoon per liter of water. This solution can also be watered, which will keep the root system healthy, protect the soil from pests. Seedlings and seedlings can be watered 2-3 times. Application will relieve them from root rot and black legs.

It is recommended to daily spray room and garden cultures with the mixture, which is prepared from a liter of water and 50 ml of 3% peroxide solution. This will give the leaves extra oxygen and eliminate the pathogens.

For pest control (insecticide), an effective drug is prepared as follows. 50 grams of sugar and 50 ml of 3% H2O2 are added to a liter of water. You can use it once a week. It is proven that it helps to get rid of aphids, shchitovki and other problems.

It has been verified that spraying seedlings with water with 3% peroxide per tablespoon per 5 liters of water will help in the fight against late blight. It is possible to process greenhouses and pipes for irrigation. It kills harmful bacteria, mold and contributes to the decomposition of harmful organic matter that accumulates there.

As we see, hydrogen peroxide can be effectively used at all stages of growing plants, ranging from seed and ending with the harvest, applicable to indoor crops and in horticulture. A very big plus is the environmental friendliness of this tool, which is important today. With a low price and considerable useful properties, the correct use of this wonderful tool will allow you to grow a wonderful crop and preserve the health of your flora.

Hydrogen peroxide for the treatment of seedlings and plants

Many people wonder if it is possible to use hydrogen peroxide for seedlings and plants? There is an unequivocal answer - this solution will not bring any harm to plants, and it will be able to provide very substantial assistance. Below we consider how to properly use peroxide for germinating seeds, growing seedlings, as a fertilizer and disinfectant for many diseases.


Peroxide is a versatile, affordable, low-cost product that suits almost all plants. It provides reliable protection against diseases and pests, excellent care for the plant. The correct dosage will make green spaces healthy, strong.

Watch the video! Hydrogen peroxide works wonders! Incredible result

A universal solution for use is: 1 liter of water with the addition of 20 ml of peroxide. This mixture will contribute to increasing soil aeration, getting rid of many bacteria, mold and fungi that form in the soil, as well as prevention from their appearance.

This solution should be watered houseplants at least 2 times a week.

From the above, it is clear that peroxide is used at all stages of growing garden and garden crops, as well as in the cultivation of indoor plants. The use of H2O2 as a component of fertilizer in industrial production, speaks of its recognition as a good feeding.

Note! And vegetable and berry crops that have been treated with peroxide can be considered environmentally friendly products, which is quite a relevant topic in our time. In addition, it is quite cheap fertilizer compared to many chemicals, as well as organic fertilizer. Hydrogen peroxide for seedlings and plantsLink to the main publication

Rooting cuttings

Sometimes the cuttings, set for rooting into the water, begin to rot or become covered with mucus. Hydrogen peroxide will help prevent this. In addition, upon contact of peroxide with water, oxygen is released, which is necessary for cuttings for better rooting.

The proportions of the solution are taken arbitrary. You can safely add to 1 liter of water, which will be cuttings, 1 tbsp. a spoon of peroxide.
