Question
Is this correct?
I hear that if someone cannot get access to a fungicide
they can make a very weak solution of pure water and hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol to temporarily fight of fungi for CP's
is this true?,if not is there a homemade fungicide that can be made?

Answer
Hello Dennis,
Yes sir you did hear correct. You can mix a 5% solution or just a cap full of hydrogen peroxide. It works very well, just mix it in a bottle of water should be enough to dilute it.

If you have more questions, I highly suggestion you join my website!
