    Just curious if anyone has used this??? I'm sure there are MUCH more efficient methods.... but this seems to be a quick simple solution for small grows...

    Never used it, but I'm sure for cabinet type grows it works. How large is your area?

    I am running an Exhale C02 bag in my tent and it seems to be working well. I don't have a way of really measuring but my plants seem to be happier since I added it. 5x4x2 tent

    great to hear it AngryBM.... I went ahead and ordered it.... figured for $40, if nothing else it's a much less expensive experiment than most...lol! I'll post with any results good, bad, or indifferent~ ty again for the reply

    well, it arrived today and something occurred to me as I was hanging it in the tent.... My exhaust fan is going to suck any CO2 that the bag might provide out of there LONG before the plant has a chance to absorb any of it...lol!!!! oh well..... live and learn I guess:hump:

    sorry to hear this; that's why the atmospheric controllers automatically shut the fans off when CO2 is engaged. Also, for $40 you could get a lot of sugar and yeast to do the same thing...

    I hear ya Paul.... I was looking for a throw it in the tent and forget about it solution.... I completely agree with you.... hindsight being 20/20.... I have a $40 ornament in my tent I guess....lol... I'm ok with that.... we make mistakes...we learn from them and it makes us better in the end I suppose....
