I accidently mixed up my hydrogen peroxide with my Maxsea fertilizer, and I used it on my sundew seedlings, my scorps, and my capes yesterday. :shock: Will my plants survive? :? :|

In moderation I wouldn't think it would kill them. You probably were only using a 3% solution further diluted with ???. I've read that it takes up to a 10% solution to kill plants, but I'm no organic chemist/biologist...though there are some lurking around here. While waiting for them to comment I'd probably be flushing the plants with some distilled water or rainwater.

Ok. I just figured a good flushing would remove some of the remaining h2o2. Was this straight-up peroxide out of a bottle or had you watered it down some?

I mean, your plants may be just fine, without flushing, but if I was worried about it I would flush them good and wait and see what happens. Who knows, it may super-oxygenate your plants and they may turn into giants...

I’ve drilled holes in the caps of water bottles and inserted straws so I could water with some precision. Of course it depends on how densely they’re planted. Or, flood them and leave them unbagged for a while so the plants can dry off some. Or just don’t do anything and see what happens. They may be fine…. Wishing you the best!
