For a typical 3-5 ‘auto flower’ plant, SOIL grow, indoor closet set-up, with adequate ventilation, WOULD YOU RATHER…?
→ Invest in CO2? (Just The bags, not the tank set up, I’m still a noob here) If so, what brand would u recommend?
→ Invest in a full set of quality nutrients? If so, what BRAND would you recommend for autos?
***for sake of argument, PLZ CHOOSE 1 or the other, NOT BOTH…or feel free to even just include your experiences with them & your favorite brands &/or type if necessary…not too concerned with pricing as a full quality set of nutrients runs roughly around the same price as many of the CO2 bag options.
I am a beginner so I am introducing one or 2 new technical aspects to my grow each time I start a new plant…as I’d like to get better familiar with each aspect as well as record the results & improvements that came from them…so plz help me decide over CO2 vs. Quality Nutes because I’m NOT going both on this grow.
I wish…sry I edited the post slightly rite after you replied…

I would invest in nutes @MedMan1878 if it were me.
Flower Power nutes are supposed to work well, I’ll be trying them my next grow.
I’ve used Vermicrop Organics nutrient line it’s a dry fertilizer you add to the soil and water in with micronutrients this worked great for me on the 2 grows I’ve used them.
I agree with @dbrn32 a good exhaust fan should supply adequate co2 for your plants.
I’d go with nutes as well. Co2 is more common in a commercial grow but not “needed” for smaller personal grows. However, having good nutes and knowing how to use them will pay off in the long run IMO. So there’s my vote! Nutes
I would definitely start with good nutes. Flower power has produced some nice looking, dense, buds during my first grow. I also used Fox Farms nutes as well. I’d have to say the flower power line seems to have out performed FF line on this first grow. I never really got above half strength either… except for this one time at band camp
