Ionic Oxygen 5L for “Healthy Plants and Roots”

£34.99 inc VAT

H2O2 has many applications in hydroponics, from sterilisation and pathogen control to adding oxygen to a nutrient solution. It is also widely used to clean down the grow room and equipment after use.

Adding Liquid Oxygen is of great benefit to the grower. This 11.9% solution will add extra oxygen to a mineral nutrient solution, increasing nutrient uptake by the roots and supercharging growth. With regular use it will combat diseases like Pythium. In between crops it can be used at a higher dose to clean equipment.

Dilution rate: 2ml per litres

Description

WHAT IS GROWTH TECHNOLOGY LIQUID OXYGEN?

Liquid Oxygen contains 11.9% hydrogen peroxide H202. Hydrogen Peroxide is a molecule which is fundamental to life itself, participating in all the metabolic processes in plants and animals. The powerful liquid formula will effectively kill all pathogens and harmful (and beneficial) bacteria.

 

When you add Liquid Oxygen to the nutrient tank it will quickly break down into pure water (H20) releasing the extra oxygen atom into the nutrient solution. Your roots will absorb this in much the same way as they do with available nutrient ions.

 

Garden tip:

 

  • Do NOT use Liquid Oxygen if your growing system is using beneficial bacteria. The formula is a powerful sanitiser that effectively kills all pathogens and bacteria. It doesn’t distinguish between harmful or beneficial bacteria.

 

USING LIQUID OXYGEN IN YOUR HYDROPONIC SYSTEM – NORMAL OPERATION

You can add Liquid Oxygen to your nutrient tank(s) on a daily basis or less regularly, around two to three times per week.

 

Using Liquid Oxygen daily will help to keep your system clean and disease free.

 

If you can’t use Liquid Oxygen daily, then using it two to three times a week in traditional hydroponic systems will provide extra oxygen to the roots as well as help to keep the nutrient solution free of pathogens and disease.

 

Garden tip:

 

  • We always recommend using nutrient chillers when the weather warms up. If your reservoir(s) start to creep over 22C, the threat of pathogen growth is greatly increased. If you don’t use a nutrient chiller in warmer temperatures, then it is advised to use Liquid Oxygen to prevent pathogen growth.
  • Always read your nutrients and boosters to ensure they are compatible with hydrogen peroxide products

 

GROWTH TECHNOLOGY LIQUID OXYGEN – DOSING RATES

The following advice covers dosing rates for Liquid Oxygen, covering most common situations.

 

MIXING LIQUID OXYGEN INSTRUCTIONS

The following instructions cover mixing Liquid Oxygen in common situations:

 

  • Stir thoroughly before circulating to plants
  • For faster blending, mix the required amount of Liquid Oxygen with a litre of lukewarm water before adding to the reservoir
  • Follow the package instructions for dosing rates for your situation

 

LIQUID OXYGEN DOSING RATE

Daily use:

 

  • Add to your reservoir daily at the rate of 1 ml per litre of reservoir water.

 

Used 2 or 3 times a week:

 

  • If it is not possible to add Liquid Oxygen daily, you can add it two to three times per week at the rate of 2 ml per litre of reservoir water.

 

HOW DO I USE LIQUID OXYGEN TO FIGHT DISEASE ISSUES IN MY HYDROPONIC SYSTEM?

Liquid Oxygen can be helpful in clearing up root diseases, such as Pythium, and to eliminate the conditions in which these plant pathogens can flourish. With hydroponic systems, problems can be caused by simply over-watering or not supplying enough oxygen at the root interface. In either case, treatment is essentially the same.

 

CAN I USE LIQUID OXYGEN TO CLEAN MY HYDROPONIC SYSTEM AFTER A GROW?

In between grows, you can use Liquid Oxygen to clean and sterilise your hydroponic system and growing medium. It is a powerful and aggressive cleaner that will effectively kill all pathogens and harmful (and beneficial) bacteria.

 

USING LIQUID OXYGEN TO CLEAN GROWING MEDIA?

If your looking to clean up your growing media, like Perlite or Hydroleca (expanded clay) remove as many of the old roots as possible. Soak the medium in a concentrated solution of Liquid Oxygen at 15 ml per litre for 24 hours. This concentration will oxidise organic matter in the medium and assist in its rapid decomposition. Remember to thoroughly flush your media with fresh water before reuse.

 

To clean and sterilise a hydroponic system, mix 15 ml per litre of Liquid Oxygen in the reservoir and circulate it around the system. Repeat if necessary. Circulating the solution works to sterilise all pipe work and drippers etc. Remember to flush the system thoroughly with fresh water or wait a few days before installing new plants.

 

WARNINGS

Always read the label and follow all precautions and warnings:

 

  • Liquid Oxygen is highly concentrated
  • Handle this product with suitable protective gloves and eye protection
  • Wash any spills or splashes off skin with clean, cold running water
  • The active ingredient (hydrogen peroxide) is a volatile and aggressive chemical
  • Carefully inspect packaging before opening and treat Liquid Oxygen with caution and handle with due care
  • Always use in a well ventilated area and do not breath fumes
