12% Peroxide as an palm crown anti-fungal


Recommended Posts

I was able to secure 12% Hydrogen peroxide on the internet (called FOOD GRADE peroxide).  On  01-17 and 01-20 mid-upper teens in Montgomery, AL there seems to be a latent aftermath of crown rot on 5 Trachys.  I thought the 12% peroxide would have a stronger anti-fungal effect but I have not used it yet.  Does anyone have experience utilising 12% hydrogen peroxide on palm crown fungus, or should it be diluted to 6% or 3% before drenching the Trachys' crowns?

Are Trachycarpus palms slow to respond to this treatment?  Nothing seems to have occurred positively yet.  I read in the internet that this recovery process could take 6-7 months (or at least until the nights are consistently over 55 F.)

Any opinions on Trachycarpus' freeze recovery with usage of hydrogen peroxide 3, 6-7, or 12%?
