I'm going to give it a shot, but I don't have anything to measure the co2, so I won't really know if it's doing anything, it's also my first indoor grow soi have nothing to compare to. I know it's not a permanent solution, but I have alot of those charcoals so burning some of them in the room isn't gonna kill me, plus I have alot of time right now.
And thanks to all who posted their ideas, I also have a kerosene lantern on the way after reading this thread.

For me, candles = too risky. Not only can I lose my candle, the whole plant, but your stash, your apartment or house!
Incense = polluted air for plants?
Charcoals= smokeless kind.... good idea? Not too knowledgeable about the specific byproducts of burning the smokeless hookah charcoal, and I wouldn't want to try it unless I were. But that aside, it offers a promising option if used in a secure ashtray or glass plate away from fire hazards (or safely prepped and monitored).
If you try it, be sure to give us your report, for better and worse!

oh yeah, and ever seen one of those CO2 test kits at the local hydro store? Maybe HD, Lowes, Grainger, or some chemist suppliers would have em, I can't imagine they'd be too hard to come across.
Yeah man, I just ordered a cheap little tester online. It's worth a shot just to see how much it increases the level in the room, I don't think it could hurt, but thinking has got me in trouble before:D
I'm able to monitor the room frequently so hopefully if anything bad happens I catch it quick. I'll post back any positives or negatives I see.
And hell yeah, I'm lovin that mushroom idea too, that's something to look into.

Excellofizz CO2 Enrichment kit. I use this. It has a eucalyptus smell to it. You actually don't need "the kit" you would just need the "pucks". All you do is add water to the bucket which comes in the kit but you could substitue this with a small spackle bucket or something.
I was thinking of getting this if I end up not liking the Excellofizz. I've seen this at the local Petsmart.
I've only been using the Excellofizz for a short time so I can't give you any definitive answer as to if it's working or not. I would like to get a meter and compare the with and without to see how much it adds to the room. It's no fuss, just drop the "puck" thing in the bucket, add 1/2 cup water and viola!! co2 will be produced with pleasant smell and it lasts approximately 8 hours (so the label says). It's also all natural

Please, put out the barbecue unless you plan on cooking me a burger. That won't add any more or less CO2, unless it was in a closed space. You are fine with the shrub and a billion other trees. You can't get rid of the CO2, ask Al Gore. You wont lose even a single PPM of CO2 to that shrub and you will gain nothing but suspicion from that fire.
Dood, trust me on this one.
10/4 will do. It sounded like a great idea

Ok, I have a twist on this post. I have an outdoor grow going into it's final stages (less than 3 weeks to go) and my small backyard is enclosed by shrubs. My thinking is that the shrubs and pot plants are fighting each other for Co2. I have been burning a small wood fire in a pit and would like to know if this is something that can help or hurt my crop. Thanks in advance for any feedback. NCB
Dam... Is that all one plant?... or am i just being dum as fucc?
