    Hi there [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I just read an article in Spacers website on how to basically create CO2. Great idea Spacer! But I was wondering what exactly are the benefits of using CO2 for plants, can all plants can can be treated with it and if there is a certain amount to use. Oh and you all should read the article it if you haven't and are interested in Co2!

    I can't find it on your site spacer. I am interested in the article as it is very benifical to CP's and makes them grow faster and healthier.

    my favorite way to make C02 is with a cute blonde at a drive-in movie...
    really though.....
    hmmm... I don't remember posting anything brilliant about C02 but it's entirely possible, I forget things;)

    maybe it was on one of my many links, I think on the forum there is a link to CPZINE where there is an article about a crude C02 setup.

    I only grow neps and pings and sundews inside in terariums, and using C02 seems like a bad idea to me anyway, my indoor plants thrive on still stagnant air. if I were going to try it I would probably kick down for one of the high tech tank and dispenser thingys from the hydroponics shop in Eugene.

    thanks for visiting though! I am working on some new features, yeah I always say that... *soon* ;)

    Hey Nep G. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Here's the link
    http://www.cpzine.com/article.aspx?cid=14&y=2001&m=10&d=29
    its short but sweet and yes it sounds crude but workable.

    Hey Unknownclown

    The plants 'breathe' in CO2. That is why it would be good for them if you can add more to their air supply. ( Their by-product is Oxygen ). Giving them more will allow them to produce more for the plant, and in turn grow quicker.

    I have a ( I can't remember the weight/pound ) CO2 tank that runs off and on 24 hours a day.

    After a couple of weeks of having it on, I saw an incredible difference with the plants.

    I also have a Co2 injection system, though I have not used it yet... I used to use it on my aquatic plants... maybe I will experiment with it soon...

    little known fact... at NIGHT, plants respirate oxygen rather than CO2, though very little of it, so injecting Co2 when the lights are off, other than to maintain a balance, is worthless, though harmless (unless your in an aquatic environment, then the plants rapidly strip the oxygen from the tank, build up CO2, and drop the acidity level so fast your fish will be breathing from the surface of the water the next morning!

    Well I will be looking into a system like that, as I would like to have nice more heathly plants. Not that I don't already! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But how much is a setup like that? Expensive?
