Seeds need water and oxygen (and in some cases light) to germinate and often the seed’s need for oxygen is overlooked. Older seeds and those with harder coats are less likely to effectively absorb oxygen, which negatively impacts their germination rate.
Scientific studies show that chemical scarification by means of soaking seeds is an effective way to increase germination rates. Studies have shown that Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2), on average, increases germination rates significantly (more so than aerated water alone). In addition, Magnesium (Mg) is important for seed germination and the production of chlorophyll. It helps strengthen cell walls and improve the uptake of nitrogen, phosphorus and sulphur. Seeds obtained from magnesium deficient plants have been shown to exhibit a reduction in germination capacity and seedling establishment.
The Afterburn Grow Seed Soaking Solution has been specifically formulated and contains both Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and Magnesium Sulphate (MgSO4) to support improved germination and healthy seedlings, giving your little plants a strong start.
Includes 10x 25ml seed soaking cups
