I grow back-up seeds in Zip-Lock Bags. The first roots started to pop out. In most of the popped seeds, I noticed little "hair" around the roots, that look like a fungal growth.

Now, I do know that I can get a 0,3% Peroxide Solution and make a 0,03% peroxide solution. The problem is that the Peroxide brands available from the local Drug Stores have other manure added in them, like oils and stuff. Will these solutions work or I need pure 0,3% Peroxide and Water solution?

Any other things that I can use?

Those little "hair(s)" are most likely (absolutely) part of the root.  Skip all that peroxide stuff and plop those little babies in soil !   Hooo Rah !!!

 

Happy Growing !

I don't know. Most roots have them, but some roots don't. They seem to originate from the root but there is definitely a fungus species that looks like this.

MNXR250R, should I not wait until the stem and the cotyledons are developed before planting them?

Here are some pictures of the seeds:

This is normal and you want them planted before you see cotyledons. I throw them in as soon as I see the root peek out.

Agreed.  Once they sprout, move them to soil or whatever media you plan to use.

 

Nice pics !!   

 

Happy Growing,

If it's fungus then it's mycorrhizae. I would say those are healthy roots. You could leave it till the cotys pop too, I don't think it really matters

I seems that you and everyone else who said the same were correct!  :P
