    Has anyone here successfully utilised oxygenates to promote improved nutrient take up or prevent/control fungal growth in soil based systems?

    I use Perlite mixed in with my soil and the soil mix is on a base layer of Clay pebbles.

    My objective is improve the growing of Chillis within the constraints of a UK climate. This typically means more rain than sun. Too much water I believe reduces the effectiveness of the Chilli roots to absorb nutrients causing the plant to lose leaves and prematurely drop fruit. Plants are smaller, become weaker and highly susceptible to fungal attack.

    Water in the soil can cause a "boundary layer". Using an oxygenate such as Hydrogen Peroxide mixed with the daily feed should be able to overcome any problems and assist with nutrient uptake.
