Liquid hydrogen peroxide contains 17.5% hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is a molecule that is fundamental to life, involved in all metabolic processes in plants and animals. When added to the nutrient container, it will quickly break down into pure water, releasing the extra oxygen atom into solution where it can be taken up by the roots in a very similar way to nutrient ions.
Liquid oxygen can be used to clean and sterilize the hydroponic system and growing medium. It is a strong and very aggressive liquid and will effectively kill all pathogens and harmful bacteria. If using media such as perlite or expanded clay, remove as much of the old roots as possible.
