Anyone run CO2 in there Greenhouse?

I don't know if its possible without losing all of your CO2 (leaking out).
If you can..... how do you do it?

Ya u could run an air conditioner also, so u didn't have to exchange air to cool the gh.
I'd imagine in a warm climate it would be very inefficient energy wise but idk for sure.

Yes it is the one thing you don't want to skip ! I have been going without co2 enrichment for several years ,once I was able to get it to stay at 1500 or so all day It did away with all larf . I use bottles and several large co2 generators in my greenhouses . Believe me you will not be disappointed if you do !!!
Peace ,oldschool

Look into a CO2 burner. Remember to circulate your air well (CO2 settles)

CO2 in a greenhouse is a terrible idea. A greenhouse needs to be ventilated otherwise it gets too humid and too hot. So you're gonna blow air into it and monitorzing CO2 levels at the same time.

Man be glad you can use the sun not a HPS aznd forget about the CO2

Whatever Reckless

CO2 is awesome in greenhouses. A co2 generator is basically a propane heater excellent in the winter. In the summer not so much

Electric heat is the most expensive method on earth. Natural gas is the best option if its available in your area. Propane/ oil are generally related to each other in price and are very affordable right now although subject to price swings, for example its about $1.75 a gallon now and a few years back it was almost $4. Depending on the size of your operation pellet or biomass boilers can be excellent choices and the price is more stable than fossil fuels.

Fermentation works pretty good too.

You get about 1 pound of CO2 for every pound of sugar you use.

It's important to use a bit of champagne yeast, so it keeps producing CO2 as the alcohol content rises.


I always thought it would be cool to work something out with a bakery. To share air with the room where all their bread rises ... lots of CO2 there.

guest of late is on a distinguished road
ive met a few people who run propane heaters in there green houses later in the season when the temps drop, weve speculated that maybe the co2 being given off is like a lil boost late in flower but we couldnt say for sure because it a wasnt fully sealed and we really dont have any experince using co2 at all. it seems like there was a notable differnce in the dense but that coulda just been because they were allowed to fully finish
