BigBill said:Hey dwmi, it was your question, ultimately it is your decision but when you make a post like you did, you found out how controversial that it was.
But you asked for an opinion and you got one. If it wasn't along the lines of what you were thinking, well that is fine. I have to imagine that you even learned quite a bit about hydrogen peroxide.
So like I said, if you want to use it, use it. None of us will ever know whether you do or not. But the fact is that you might be better informed then you were a few days ago, and that is cool!
I totally understand where you're coming from

Wow, thanks for the info BigBill and DaisyI. I did not know that about acid rain.

I learned my lesson with peroxide. Burned way too many plant leaves. And peroxide is not a good idea to use in PREVENTING root rot. Only a LAST resort when you actually get root rot (and even then...?). And not the kind of root rot from overwatering.

Thank you for asking that question @dwmi

Thank you all

I am embarrassed. We have a new member that is asking a question and you guys jump down dwmi's throat. What a nice welcome! We don't know everything here. Maybe we could learn something instead of cutting dwmi off at the knees. I think an apology is required. I admire @dwmi for standing up for him/herself. Usually, we are so patient, kind and helpful.
Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.

I don't see anyone jumping down anyone's throat here. I do see some very experienced gardeners trying to keep someone from killing his plants.

I'm new here and I think "Are you kidding me? Have you ever grown a tomato?" is very harsh and makes me afraid to post a question.

I would think taking it down a notch would make this a friendlier, more welcoming place, but that's just my opinion.

I agree

We can get our thoughts out without being rude to one another.

If you look it up many use Hydrogen peroxide for plants. I have used it during seed starting and I know people who use it in hydroponic gardens.
One reason some say rainwater is better for plants then ground water is that Hydrogen peroxide is found in rainwater.
