    Co2 ?

    ive been trying to figure a cheep way to add additional co2 to my grow room. I’m not thrilled with exhale bags,or with the expense of a tank and regulator. I choose a different path, Since the temp’s outside have dropped so has my grow closet temp to the point where I needed a heater to keep temps up I’ve taken to light up a candle and place in a holder so it can’t spill or catch anything on 🔥 it sits above all fans so there’s no chance of it being blown out as long as I practice good safety measures I can’t see a problem, how about u? All replies will b met with much thanks 😁

    For Co2 I use yeast. Warm water, sugar and yeast. Works for a few days - don't really know if it helps, can't do a side by side comparison to tell.
    But one likes to think all these little tricks help produce big buds.

      Yea Canuck I saw OJH do that very thing a few months back but I never found out how he made out? I guess it’s like additives for your car if u think it’s working than it’s working If not it’s just snake oil, Lol


        I brew wine and beer, my plan is to start running the exhaust from that to the grow room. It is something they need to make O2 right,,,

          Sounds like an eco friendly alternative to buying CO2 tanks and the refills. I checked with the local grow shop, and it is $140 for the tanks, and $7.00 for refills. Rwise, your CO2 is much cheaper, and you are making use of a byproduct. Such a deal!

          Well the house can smell like a brewery some days, but I had 6 wines going then. I would be afraid of CO rather than CO2, and wax getting on the weed from the fumes, I may be paranoid,,,

          Not only save the funds, but I get to have a nice wine with the buds
          Making wine is really easy to,the hardest thing was picking 60 lbs of blackberries! (2 batches, 6 gallon each)

          I sure would like to try that wine...... and that wine infused bud😁

        If you grow in occupied space the CO2 levels are higher.

        I have my tent in the bedroom and run my lights at night -when plants use CO2.
        WIth 2 people in the bedroom the CO2 raises to 800ppm !

        Close enough for me,especially since I run a cool temperature tent.

        It's all bullshit - until you smoke it!
