    I found out why my yeast co2 maker ran out of co2 . The more yeast you add the more co2 you will get in a shorter time. If I wanted to make the co2 maker last longer I would need to use less yeast but the tank would have less co2 in it then it dose now.

    By the way WOW THERE growing really FAST . This co2 stuff really works [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I had an interesting idea for those of us with small terrariums. Use a small freezer and set the temp to 1 degree above the freezing point of dry ice. Run a small hose from the freezer to the terrarium. This should allow for a small steady flow, and won't have to be refilled very often.

    Well, comments??

    Joseph, The first snag your going to hit is finding a freezer that will cool down to a temperature of -109.3F (-78.5C). That's the surface temperature of dry ice. Here's more info on dry ice: How stuff works

    West871,

    What's your setup for CO2... (i.e. yeast to sugar ratio and dispersion method)? Just interested... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Question

    I am now useing more sugar then before I find it works better.

    So 1 and a half cups of sugar In a 2L pop jug

    With about 5 cups of cool to warm water .( Dont use HOT water it will kill the yeast)

    And 1 tbsp of yeast .

    After you put it all into the 2L pop jug shake it .

    The mix Dose allot better if you keep it warm(Not hot) so I have it sitting on top of my shop lights .

    The whole thing is working great the sundews are really growing fast.The bubbling is now more then ever in my 7 oz pond now that I keep it warm.

    west, ********** no longer injects with CO2, infact, they sold the reactor on the forums a few months ago...

    But I inject it in my terrarium, I am currently out... I have a 20 lbs bottle with an aquarium quality regulator on it...
