It will not be hurt by leaving it to soak a long time (hours) because the Hydrogen Peroxide breaks down to Hydrogen gas and water.
    Thank you. I never use this before...I'll try.
    May I put hidrogen peroxide on parts of the p-bulb, either? maybe using a little cotton stick (?) Or it's just for roots

    It can be used on all parts of the plant except the flowers.
