Any of You use peroxide in water or soil for rooting

Sometimes ago I came across an article regarding water rooting. There was no mention on changing the water, but the starting water was 90% tap water, 10% peroxide. When transferring from water to soil, there was again mention of a potting soil watered with that same solution.
Any of You try it? What do you think

I am one of the several here who don't start in water. Assuming you are talking about over-the-counter peroxide I cannot see where that amount of peroxide would help or hinder.

i have never heard of that, but heck anything is possible. i know that that particular solution is used for the dampening off. ( when you grow the seeds and they get the mildew) just in case ya didn't know :') ~Medo

I use a 20:1 solution or 10:1 myself. I have found that it helps significantly. I don't get any damping off now, and I don't get mold or mildew, either. There are also numerous other reasons why hydrogen peroxide should be considered, but all I know is that I'm not going back to plain water. I really like my results since I started with this solution. I hope you find what works best for you!

Blessings,

I use it regularly in anything that I root in water. It does seem to help. I do change the water regularly and keep the peroxide solution stable. I won't use plain water any more either. Linda
