What color should the solution be? I just want to make sure that an ounce of the Quick Cure is similar to an ounce of KMnO4 crystals.
Note that the above recipe is not using an ounce of KMnO4. You first are making a 3% solution of the KMnO4 from crystals, and then using a (liquid) ounce of the 3% solution.

If you are going to use a bleach dip, be sure to use a dechlorinator at (at least) double strength to neutralize any residual chlorine.

In addition, a 5 minute bleach bath may be too long for more sensitive plants. I have never exceeded 3 minutes when using a 1/20 bleach solution. Sensitive plants like Hornwort will not even survive more than 1 minute, in my experience.
