Grow Room CO2
Carbon dioxide is an essential gas necessary for plants. It helps them with photosynthesis which is fundamental for plant growth.
Does CO2 increase yield?
You can increase yield and reduce time to harvest if you increase their CO2 intake alongside ample grow lighting. You should increase your plants CO2 intake and also provide them good grow lights increasing their light intake too.
Fluorescent grow lights are not really as effective as MH and HPS grow lights or LED grow lights; therefore, if you want to maximize yield opt for an increase in CO2 levels and opt for LED grow lights.
How much CO2 is required?
Generally, the level of CO2 in our atmosphere is 400 ppm but increasing this to 1000-1200 ppm can help plants a lot. If CO2 level increases beyond this range, it can be very harmful for your plants. This makes CO2 controllers an important accessory to ensure your plants grow healthy and strong.
How to add CO2 into your grow room?
You can find CO2 tank and regulator kits and CO2 burners at Groindoor.com to introduce CO2 into your grow room. CO2 burners produce the gas by burning propane or natural gas while tanks and regulator kits have CO2 tanks that release CO2 into the atmosphere. You can also use natural CO2 producers to provide more CO2 to your plants without utilizing heat or electricity.
How to use CO2 in a grow room?
You can use multi-function grow room controllers to make sure that your photoperiod is synced with increased CO2 levels inside your grow room. Given CO2 improves your plant’s ability to absorb light, you do not want extra CO2 in your grow room during the lights off period.
