    It might work, but stuff like Perrier is called "mineral water" for a reason. You would need to find purer water that had been carbonated.

    You can never be too careful about your water quality, esp. if the Utricularia are in an undrained situation: what goes in, stays in. It is an interesting thought and cautious experimentation with spare plants seems in order!

    The other question is how long the carbon dioxide will remain dissolved in the water. Most of it will escape as soon as you open the bottle and the soda goes flat. I don't know how quickly the remaining CO2 that is dissolved in the water would be used up. With the CO2 generator there is a constant input into the water. It seems like it might be expensive and/or of little benefit. And risky too.

    ya, i thought abotu the co2 reeduction do to the evaporation of it in the water... soo as i said this is just a experiment that i am hoping will be at least a small success, and from there i will find the problems i face and then correct them if i can, for example if my co2 will escape i will develop and inclosement to trap the co2 in the tank... but yes i will make sure this is an success, before i give any positive feedback from myself... thank you everyone for your comments and oppinions...

    How about dry ice? It's frozen CO2.
    Pro's: adds CO2 to water
    Creates "witch's brew" effect as it boils in the water.
    Can be purchased at many grocery stores.

    Con's: Can cause frost bite on bare skin
    Can cause frost bite or freeze plants it touches
    Cools water as it "boils"

    Just an idea [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
