adding hydrogen peroxide to water/perlite? necessary?!
    #4683283 - 09/19/05 08:36 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

well my jars are about ready to be birthed and cased, ive never birthed a single jar in my entire life, let alone case, so i figure i will continue with all these questions that continue to pop in my mind. I notice that everyone seems to be adding Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) to the water before its added to perlite, most likely to help with sterility im guessing... but since i read those posts after i had created my fruiting chamber, my FC has stabilized at OPTIMAL conditions, and id like to leave it alone. there is no H2O2 in there, but i figure i will add a tiny bit to the spray bottle before i spray the casing layer / FC once the casing is complete. is H2O2 a big deal? or just basically added security, because if tapwater-created-humidity has contaminates, i better start over with my FC and fast, right? help! thanks!

ive cased very successfully by doing exactly what you described as your plan. i do mix the peroxide if i do cakes in a fruiting chamber though cause ive found it virtually eliminates certain blights.

Personally, I would take your h202 and spill out several "glugs" into the bottom of your chamber and not worry about it adding more to your perlite until your second flush.

Now... adding h2o2 to your misting bottle I think is more optional...I believe that is recommended if you think you start to see contams. Some may use it in their misting bottle regardless.

(vets, correct me if I'm wrong???)

I use it in my misting bottles, and perlite. Better safe than sorry, right?

feeling safe is fine, but I stopped using peroxide like that a long time ago. It is by no means a big deal, or anywhere near necessary. Use it if you want, don't feel bad if you never get around to it. Particularly in the misting bottle.

The only thing I would use peroxide for today would be to protect agar or grains when doing open air transfers. Alas, I don't do open air transfers anymore so....
