you guys spend a lot of time in your grow room? I just learned that actualy doing that gives the plants the c02 they love from US! Man that is awesome thats why I sit and ponder day in and day out with my babies............lol
I am using a coleman camping burner that screws on top of a 1 lb propane bottle. I refill my 1 lb bottles from my barbcue size propane bottles. Burning 1 lb of propane gas produces 3 lbs of Carbon Dioxide Gas. Check out this post by seedlessone CO2 Answered! . If you decide to use fire to produce CO2 make sure that you are burning something that creates a clear or blue flame. Clear or blue flames produce CO2 while a yellow flame creates Carbon Monoxide which is bad for plants.
hey video man no disrespect I was just sharing my enthusiasm for this new found hobby. Lol sorry if I sounded pretentious` let me know and I will post some pics (new ones) maybe you might have some advice. I am currently doing a home made c02 bottle..............talk to you later`
I want to build a sugar yeast co2 system but in this manner
Use a seal tight 5 gal container of some kind or maybe a beer keg.
Attach a big ass ballon to it to catch the co2 then use an air line and valve to release the co2 on the plants.
ballon doesn't pump then the co2 is gone and with the spray nozzle I can put the co2 where I want when I want.
I love being with my plants also. Right now thats all I do. Several trips a day all day long.
nice me too my babies have just woken up and have recieved about two hours of my time. I t was a nice moment. Thnx for sharing moon~
yes but with YOU in thier atmosphere they still only get to about 350 ppm of co2 the real noticable change occurs when you reach 1500 ppm. while tanks and regulators drive up production cost the benefit of highly enriched air is wroth the extra cost.
Also people the is no reason to co2 your veg side, you only need to gas your flowering plants
let me ask this then. They have those co2 kits for aquariums...........will those serve my purpose? Because right now I am using a homade sugar one~
Gee abudsmoker.....you gotta know that I love ya lots dude!
But I always use the co2 in vegging, it really blasts off the growing. If you compare my plants at say 3 weeks old to plants not using co2, there is a dramatic difference in size. I feel that doing this gives me more budding sites.
Actually there is an unconfirmed rumor floating around that you should stop the co2 two weeks prior to harvest, it is suggested tht it reduces potency.
I emphasize the word "unconfirmed" as I use co2 and havent had any negative effects using it til the very end. I still take 3-4 hits on my stuff and get totally wasted for many hours. That's good stuff.
I do however agree to the point that what you want is nice fat juicy buds, and the co2 will certainly give you them. In fact I am on my way this morning to get my tank re-filled. Than I will transplant them into bigger pots and start the flowering cycle.
