I’ve seen pictures of the co2 bags and they look neat but I’ve heard of using baking soda and vinegar. I was thinking about giving this a try but at the same time I’m not sure if the vinegar in the air would affect the weeds flavor. Hopefully not but I’m curious if anyone has given it a try. Or maybe has anyone tried another method of producing co2 without breathing on it haha.
There’s no need for additional co2 unless you are in a sealed system like my closet, where I have no ventilation, except opening the door once a day, not enough to help so i use a co2 bag which do add some but some people would say its not enough, but i believe it helps in my situation. If you are drawing fresh air into your tent you are also bringing co2 along. Also if you are running massive lighting you can run co2. Hope this helps, happy growing man
For CO2 to be of any benefit you have to optimize your system to accept it. Canopy is exposed to high partial pressures while O is supplied to the root zone, heat and humidity removal is mandatory along with high light and nutrient levels. CO2 bags are a waste of time and money. They simply don’t provide any meaningful amount for the plants.
I have a tent in my closet. But no doors on the closet. And i have a second smaller tent acting kind of like a lung room next to it. I don’t have the exhaust going outside But it does get fresh air because i have a backdoor in my room and that’s open most of the day. I didnt really think i needed to add co2 but it was a lingering thought in the back of my mind. Thank you.
Save your money and invest in a gucci light. That’s the single biggest help you can provide to your grows.
Save the 50 bux for seeds…. Our smaller indoor tents have air recycle in minute or so for me…couple for others. I run 8" pulling 3 tents. Co2 goes right out. If i sit in tent and smoke they get more than a bag.
Intake some fresh air from outside is probably your best bet. Set it up to come on via a temp controller or on the timer for your lights.
If you do decide to experiment with it, you should of course have a measuring device so you can tell if it even does anything for you and where you’re at. It’s my understanding that in order to efficiently boost CO2 you need to create a “closed loop” and then you also need some big time dehumidification and or AC.
There is another way to do CO2 you use dry yeast and sugar water and one tomato .you get two cups of sugar and desolve it in one ltr of warm water add two tablespoons of yeast stir it all around now get ur self a two or three ltr bottle paint it black so the light doesnt penetrate inside add the sugar water and yeast into the bottle now cut up a tomato into smaller pieces put those into the bottle this will last for a month or two you just need to shake the bottle everytime u look at ur plants the yeast eats the sugar in the water and in the tomato i use this system all the time and i can see the difference between having it in the tent to not having it in my tent
