Abstract The background of this pilot experiment was to find out if treatment in nature with hydrogen peroxide would be feasible as control measure. The experiment was designed to 1. try to raise plants in containers, and 2. to observe the effect of hydrogen spraying on the plants. This would allow to determine the optimal plant growing conditions and to determine a range of doses that could be used in a possible larger experiment. In conclusion it may be say that only the highest concentration of 30% had a marked and direct effect, but still was not enough to kill the plant. The 10% had a clear effect as well but did not kill most of the leaves. The higher concentrations are hazardous to people who will do the spraying, and are therefore not practical. The lower concentrations have little or no effect.
