  1. Beginner Discussion
    Hi everyone, this is my first time making a vivarium and my frog (i am a father to be) arrives in two weeks. My plants have been growing in the terrarium for about a week and a half now - I planted them originally and then realized I hadn't cleaned them, so I pulled them out, rinsed the roots...
  2. Plants
    This isn't entirely a plant-related question, but I wanted to be sure, as I have some valuable plants coming in that I want to disinfect (even if they probably won't need it). I'm not an expert on cleaning things (including clothing), but "bleach" has always seemed to me to be a general term...

    I didn't think about sterilizing plants until recently, so I just tried my hand with a new batch I got. I let the plants soak in water for 30 minutes, then let them soak in a 10% bleach solution for 12 minutes, then rinsed them well, and let them dry out for a few hours. They've all been...

  8. Plants
    Hi all I have a thought regarding the sterilization of the plants, I know that every one uses Bleach solution. I was thinking and wanted to know if anyone uses - Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) or 99% alcohol For my best knowledge (my Wife the PHD Chemist), the KMnO4 is a very good oxidizer...
