Supplementing CO2 is important for indoor growers. CO2 can be the most limiting factor when it comes to plant growth. It is good to know how to measure and understand if you have a CO2 problem. It is also an inexpensive method of increasing your crop production.
This video debunks the myth of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) of bring a pollutant. Reason why Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant and it is a gas of life for plants. As the video say at from 1:30 to 2:07; If Carbon Dioxide (CO2) levels is below like 250 parts per million the plant stopped growing or grow at a very slow rate. If Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations fall below at 150 ppm or below the threshold; plants die off. The lowest level ever for Earth Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations was 180 ppm which is 30 ppm above the plants die off level (150 ppm) and plants will be working so hard to survive and Stoma on the plant on the plant leaf will be open so wide and big it can get. But when Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations is high to plant’s Stoma shrink because the plants is getting plenty of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) which makes plant growth more efficiently and don’t lose as much water uptake nutrients more efficiently also more tolerant to heat and drought. So we should be praising about Earth Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations surpassing the 400 parts per million threshold. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the Earth Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations have increase from 280 ppm to 400 ppm and the plant will be loving the extra amount of Carbon Dioxide today.
If you planing to raise plants indoor and want to know how to build a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) generator. For me I haven’t built one yet and you plans and designs how to build one. Let me know in the comments below.
