Frequently asked questions

1. What is NutriHydro Hydrogen Peroxide?
A: Our 12% solution helps disinfect and oxygenate water, preventing root diseases and algae growth for flourishing plants in hydroponics and aeroponics.

2. What sizes and prices are available?
A: We offer convenient sizes: 250 mL (P65), 500 mL (P99), 4 L (P645), and 20 L (P2,200).

3. How can I apply it?
A: Spray mist or dipping works for grow mediums, tools, equipment, greenhouses, and grow channels.

4. Why is sanitation crucial in hydroponics/aeroponics?
A: Harmful microorganisms can contaminate equipment, water, and mediums, harming your plants. Regular disinfection protects your plants and promotes optimal growth.

5. How does NutriHydro Hydrogen Peroxide help?
A: It releases oxygen upon contact with organic matter, breaking down microorganisms and killing them effectively.

6. When should I use it?
A: Use it regularly for prevention and for:
a. Disinfecting new/used equipment and tools.

c. Treating root rot or algae problems.
d. Cleaning and sanitizing reservoirs and channels.
e. Oxidizing stagnant water for better oxygen levels.

7. Can I apply it directly to plants?
A: Yes, it is safe to apply directly to plants. You can spray it on leaves to prevent microbial growth, but ensure that it’s diluted to the appropriate concentration for safe application.

8. How often should I use it?
A: Once every 1-2 weeks for prevention, more frequently (2-3 times per week) for existing problems until resolved.

9. Do I need to dilute it?
A: Yes, follow the instructions on the label or consult our website for specific dilution ratios.

10. Is it safe for pets and children?
A: Keep it out of reach. While not typically toxic in small amounts, it can cause irritation and potential health issues.

13. Does 12% hydrogen peroxide harm my plants?
A: No, the 12% concentration is specifically formulated for hydroponics and aeroponics, ensuring effectiveness without harming your plants. It’s gentler than higher concentrations.

14. Can I mix NutriHydro Hydrogen Peroxide with other cleaning products?
A: Absolutely not! Mixing it with certain chemicals can create harmful and even explosive reactions. Stick to using it alone for maximum safety.

15. Does it affect the pH of my water?
A: While hydrogen peroxide is a weak acid, its impact on water pH in typical hydroponic settings at the 12% concentration is likely negligible. However, monitoring pH levels after use is always a good practice, and adjustments may be necessary depending on your specific setup and buffering capacity.

16. Can I use hydrogen peroxide for seed germination?
A: In very diluted concentrations (0.1-0.5%), hydrogen peroxide can help break down seed dormancy and improve germination rates. Be careful not to use too much, as it can damage germinating seeds.

17. Is it good for cleaning fruits and vegetables?
A: Diluted hydrogen peroxide can be a safe and effective way to remove surface bacteria and impurities from fruits and vegetables. Rinse them thoroughly afterward with clean water.

18. Is NutriHydro Hydrogen Peroxide food grade?
A: Yes, NutriHydro Hydrogen Peroxide is food grade.

19. Is NutriHydro Hydrogen Peroxide environmentally friendly?
A: Hydrogen peroxide breaks down naturally into water and oxygen, leaving no harmful residues in the environment. It’s a great choice for those seeking eco-friendly cleaning solutions.

20. Are there organic alternatives to hydrogen peroxide for disinfection?
A: Yes, options like vinegar, citric acid, and essential oils can be effective disinfectants in certain situations. However, they may not be as broad-spectrum or potent as hydrogen peroxide.
