Smokeweedeveryday started grow question 4 years ago
I’ve done Barney’s seeds once before (outside grow) turned up nice. This is my first indoor grow. Any help would be nice. My only question is , do I need to supply co2 to the tent, if so then how is the cheapest way without buying co2 bottle. Tent is in the basement
Thanks ever

Hi, at first my suggestions to your Grow and then my answer. Ok Yout "datas" are ok. Maybe try to rise the Humidity, Plants like to have more humid envoirement. i post you and VPD chart in the Comments. The EC=? is it the EC of the soil=?I think so. And i see no Daytemperature.To help if problems are happen its good to have a complete filled dataschedule. Ok, In my Opinion its not worth for a"hobbygrow" to use CO2. Its expensive,and in my eyes not worth. Its better to put your money in soil Ph meter/ ec meter, fan Pots... etc. The Benefits are better.

No you don't need to supply extra CO2, as long as you renew the air in the tent. As long as you are exhausting the air in the tent, you will be fine. Also, 1.2 EC (600 PPM) is going to burn the seedling. Stop feeding and let the plant feed itself from the soil.

You dont need it. Some growers do it (you can find a lot of diy Solutions with Google or YouTube).
I believe they only bring a small effect because they dont producer enough co2 + you lose most of them by blowing air out.

If you want a real effect you need pur co2 from co2 bottles and special equipment to control the amount(co2 controller and a special environment to keep the co2 high.)

Hope this can help you, but feel free to try it with a cheap diy Solution from YouTube or somewhere else to make your one experience, it will have no bad impact :grin::v:

CO2 is actually pretty important during veg, but DIY is pretty complicated to get it right. basically the idea is that yes, plants do use CO2 and benefit from it , but you need something like a 100L tank of DIY yeast and sugar recipe for a 1.2mx1.2 space , and if you have exhaust, maybe that's still not enough. At any time the yeast mixture can basically turn rotten and ruin everything in the surrounding area... it's sensitive, you might save money buying a system if it doesnt destroy your grow, know what I mean? anyway it probably will still not be enough even if you buy the bottles... Whatever you decide, i've linked some recipes in the comments. hope this helps ! :rocket:
