Growth Technology - Liquid Oxygen
Growth Technology - Liquid Oxygen
Growth Technology - Liquid Oxygen provides your plants’ roots with a strong source of extra oxygen to help roots to thrive. Liquid Oxygen also creates a hostile environment for root diseases.
- Growth Technology – great value-for-money additives
- Releases oxygen into your nutrient solution
- Helps to create a sterile root-zone, killing root-diseases
- Increased oxygen level gives increased root activity
- Can be used in any grow-medium
- Can be used in any type of grow-system
- Not suitable for organic growing or when using friendly microbes
- This is a corrosive material. A Safety Data Sheet is available under the attachments tab above
1 bottle of Growth Technology - Liquid Oxygen (choose your size above)
How Liquid Oxygen Works:
Growth Technology - Liquid Oxygen is a strong solution of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). When it is mixed into your nutrient solution the hydrogen peroxide breaks down into a molecule of water (H2O) plus an oxygen atom (O). The oxygen atom will then join another oxygen atom and form a stable dissolved O2 molecule which “oxygenates” the water or it will attack microbes or other organic molecules and break them down. In this way, Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen creates a highly oxygenated and sterile root-zone. Roots thrive in a highly oxygenated solution and the lack of root-diseases ensures they do not get root-rot.
The sterile solution that this product creates means that it is unsuitable for organic growing or for use with other products which contain or require friendly microbes. Peroxide will kill these microbes along with the unfriendly types, making this product unsuitable for use in these grow situations.
Using Liquid Oxygen:
Use Growth Technology - Liquid Oxygen can be used right the way through the plant’s life from cutting to harvest. Liquid Oxygen is suitable for use with plants grown in any medium and in any type of grow-system except organic farming methods or grows which utilise friendly microbes. Simply make up your nutrient solution as normal and add 1ml/Litre of Liquid Oxygen and mix well. Check and adjust the pH as necessary.
Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen breaks down fairly quickly and needs to be added every day to be effective.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
WARNING: Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen is an aggressive liquid. Aggressives are types of substance which can cause damage to skin and clothing and can cause burns. This group of products includes, but is not limited to: pH Up (potassium hydroxide), pH Down (nitric acid, phosphoric acid, citric acid), Liquid oxygen (hydrogen peroxide) and products containing liquid forms of silica/silicon. Always add straight to your reservoir water and mix well straight away. Do not mix aggressive substances with any other product while in their concentrated form. When using, always wear suitable protection (gloves, goggles etc.) and keep out of the reach of children at all times. For more info on handling Liquid Oxygen, call our team on 01782 749955.
