Experiment: Use of Hydrogen Peroxide to induce root formation in plant cuttings
I decided to try an experiment to see if dilute concentrations of hydrogen peroxide could promote root formation in cuttings.
A rack of twenty test tubes was set up
in the first
a 1/100 solution of 3% h2o2
1/50 solution of 3% h2o2
1/25 solution of 3% h2o2
1/12.5 solution of 3%h2o2
We see in this image taken after one week that only the control has started growing roots.
Conclusion, H2O2 does not induce rooting of cuttings.
