CO2 Enhancers

by BVV |

When considering your grow setup, you should highly consider CO2. Plants use the energy in sunlight to convert CO2 and water to sugar and oxygen. The plants use the sugar for food and CO2 gives the plants more energy to thrive and grow. You have various options when it comes to CO2. You can use CO2 tanks, mushroom bags, or an enhancer. All these options should be placed above the canopy of the flowers for optimal absorption. This ultimately will help increase in plant production and bigger yields.

CO2 Tanks:

With CO2 tanks you have a couple of size options. The sizes are 20lb and 50lb. The 20lb tank should theoretically last about 44 days of continuous use. The 50lb should theoretically last 110 days of continuous use.

Pros:

  • Increase growth in veg and flower stage
  • Builds plants resistance to disease
  • Increase uptake of beneficial substances
  • Increases root production

Cons:

  • Too much CO2 can restrict plants uptakes of nutrients
  • Too much CO2 can stunt the plants growth
  • Cost to refill the tank

Mushroom Bags:

Mushroom bags contain a substrate and a spawn, the spawn is on the top of the mushroom bag. Once the substrate is inoculated with the spawn it will produce mushrooms that will give off CO2. It typically takes 5 to 10 days to produce CO2. The CO2 from the spawn bag will last about 6months.

Pros:

  • Simple to use and inoculate
  • Increase growth in veg and flower stage
  • Builds plants resistance to disease
  • Increase uptake of beneficial substances
  • Easily replaceable

Cons:

  • Must spray the mushrooms every now and again
  • Too much CO2 can restrict plants uptakes of nutrients
  • Too much CO2 can stunt the plant's growth

 

CO2 Enhancers:

The CO2 enhancers contain all-natural CO2 made from organic ingredients. This is a safe and effective solution for your CO2 supplementation. For the enhancer you will have to remove the top of the bottle and give it a quick shake for the ingredients to mix together and distribute CO2 into your grow space. The enhancer lasts for 2-3 weeks.

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Cheap option for CO2
  • Increase growth in veg and flower stage
  • Builds plants resistance to disease
  • Increase uptake of beneficial substances
  • Easily replaceable

Cons:

  • Replace quite frequently
  • Too much CO2 can restrict plants uptakes of nutrients
  • Too much CO2 can stunt the plant's growth
