6% H2O2
    #2422828 - 03/12/04 09:16 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

The only stuff I can get here (Japan) is a 6% H2O2-water solution. Is this any use at all? I'm hoping that, even at such a low concentration, it might still be useful to use in mycelium syringes.

I intend to track down some more threads, but thought I'd post this as well (as a lot of you folks really know what you're talking about).

I'm a total newbie grower and have trouble getting a lot of equipment due to my location (eg... I've managed to get a syringe from a hairdresser of all people - he's also getting the H2O2 for me - but can't get sharps for the life of me).

I have a PC and want to work with grain (as I can't read the labels on anything to see if there are additives or not).

As I can't get sharps for my syringe, I am using oven tek (building a bodgy glovebox soon...) and cracking the jar lids to innoculate (It's also a bit of a worry trying to get reasonable sterile procedures happening to make and use a spore syringe when you've got to do it without the pointy bit).

I have lost a few jars (for obvious reasons) but have a few that are doing OK now (30% and fingers crossed tightly).

I am hoping that some H2O2 will let me work more easily with a honey innoculate (yep... no Karo in Japan) in conditions which are less than ideal.

Would appreciate some good advice.

Yes 6% is still good, most is only 3% I use 17% peroxide though,
and add .84ml of h2o2 to 500ml h2o, you will need to do some maths
to work out how much you need.

Maybe instead of cracking the jars open, a bigger hole
in the lid might be better, then you can fill it with pollyfill
for air exchange, killing two birds with ones stone, so to speak.

I'm using polyfill in my lids (one thing that I COULD find here), but can't innoculate through it as I have no pointy bit on my syringe...

Thanks for the info re the H2O2. I had assumed that everyone was talking about diluting a 100% solution.

Are there any particular teks relating to working with this stuff that I should read?

Yeah, just add half the amount it says in the 3% teks.

100% not quite an explosive, but it will set fire to stuff on contact in a very cool way :smile:

Glad I found this out guys...

I was thinking 6% was really weak and likely would have fried everything.

The guy across the road from me is a hairdresser and he gets this directly from a supplier (He told me he can get a 36% solution from a medical supplier, but he has to fill out forms saying why he wants it...)

I wonder why it's stronger here..?? (Japanese hair is really thick - and black...?)

you can get 36% from a hydroponics store, or ask someone you know who's a lifegaurd..I have a gallon of 36% :smile: it was only 10$ CAN
