Hello ! So as your soil is a pre-fertilized soil you will not have to use nutrients until the end of week 3 , however you can start using nutrients for roots such as rhizotonic or enzymes right now on the 1st week to settle some benefical bacteria in your soil . Then you will probably need to use a Grow/veg nutrient ( a couple time ) to help her during the late veg and the 2 first week of flowering then you need to switch to a bloom/flowering nutrient and maybe some Pk booster and taste enhancer if you think it is necessary. Now concerning your Co2 generator I think you can use it cauz Co2 will remain the same molecule but the Co2 need to be controle so check it and make a little math to know if the generator can be set up to automatically power on or off when CO2 levels reach a specific ppm (higher than 2000ppm will kill your plant) , and you have to know that Co2 is more efficient with high temps like 30/32 °C. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

Is this a generator that puts co2 into the water? I'm guessing it is not very efficient, however Co2 will increase yields. I personally wouldn't be using it until I was efficient in my current grows. You should also make sure that the room is completely sealed with the use of Co2 otherwise your defeating the point.

Just remember that Fresh air Is completely free and air exchanging your tent multiple times a day will insure that your plants have plenty enough co2 for great production. For example I pulled 1.9 pounds last grow on a HPS and I expect with my tweaks that this run will be closer to 2.25-2.5. Thats with zero co2 and no fan leaf removal.
