I attended the Oregon Hemp Convention over the weekend and one of the top, bigger medicinal growers in Oregon was discussing his use of hydrogen peroxide in his grows. Besides using it to kill He stated that he adds 1/2 cup (over the counter hp) for every gallon and soaks his seeds to germinate. He states he gets an almost perfect germination results with this method and it also makes the sprouts stronger. He also uses the same mix for his clones, which besides killing any bacteria and prevent infections, it helps with speeding and strengthening the rooting process. He states HP works a lot better (and a lot cheaper) than all those so-called rooting gels. I've been trying to research it on the web but there's not a lot of info about cannabis seed germination or cloning using HP, most of the info is about vegetable and flower seed germination, which I know really doesn't matter because seed germination is the same in all horticulture but I was wondering if anyone here has tried using these techniques and what the results are?
I bought 12 seeds from The Dank Team within the last 3 month. The were in breeder's packs and shipped professionally. I have kept the seeds with dessicant in a plastic storage tube @ 42°F in a low humidity refrigerator within minutes from when they were received. I attempted to germinate them by soaking 10 hours in 78°F H20 with 2 tsp. of 3% H2O2. Then moved to moist paper towels @ 82°F waiting to see sign of the first tap root within 3 days. Water spritz lightly using water H2O2 to keep only moist not damp. Changing the paper towels inside cupped plates every 3 days.
