Could you elaborate on the potassium permanganate method? Have you found it to be gentler and therefore safer than bleach?endlercollector said:
It is definitely less harsh than bleach on plants while killing critters. You'll use only 1/4 tsp of potassium permanganate per gallon of tap water (don't dechlorinate it). Use gloves as it can burn skin.stella1979 said:Could you elaborate on the potassium permanganate method? Have you found it to be gentler and therefore safer than bleach?
Yep. Thats what I used in the rare occasions I quarantined them, never killed a plant.CraniumRex said:Is that 1 part bleach to 19 parts water? I've read that ratio, just confirming.
Oh thank you! I thought it was called a tropica fern Thanks again!DutchAquarium said:Tropica refers to the name of the company, I'm guessing you picked up a java fern. Just leave it for a few minutes. 5 minutes is what i do.
