Roots need oxygen, not c02.


Yes, its the leaves that need co2, the roots need oxygen. This application is more for aquariums with underwater vegetation that absorbs co2 from the water it lives in. Even in hydroponic applications of cannabis its just the roots underwater,not the vegetation like seaweed and whatnot. Good question though, and if the tablets lasted long enough you might be able to rig a system that captures the co2 when it rises out of the water and have the gas feed the leaves. I tried using a completely different brand of tabs from an aquarium store and let the gas feed my clones. I just put tabs in a cup of water on its own and put that in with the clones under the dome to provide extra co2. It may have helped but nothing noticable since the tabs fizz out after 5 min or less.

I found these tablets from the online UK grow shops and was wondering if anyone has tried them as is considering giving them a go. Found a dosing machine for them to.

Here is the rightup of it

Co2 Tablets

These tablets are designed as a cheap alternative to other carbon dioxide systems. By offering gas directly to the root of the plant there is a significant increase in growth. Use one tablet for every 200 ltrs of water, in soil or hydroponics. Carbon dioxide is active for 4-6 hours in the water after dosing. The addition of the dosing machine, which fits onto any tank, regulates the entire process for you.

I use ceramic Air stones and supercharge the Nutrient solution



What does the community think on these ????


If my system had a resevior I would like to try it as an experiment on a whole or half a crop to see results. I def find it an interesting thing.

just get a coca cola bottle, fill it half way, makea hole in the lid, put an air line in the lid, put the airline into your grow room, put a small cup of water there, put the end of the air line in and itll bubble out into your grow room.

I like your method with the coke bottle for bubbling the CO2 into the air--I'm just wondering, however, if the pellet dropped into the water can bubbble for at maximum six hours, do you then have to put a pellet into the water 4 times a day? (on a 24/7 light schedule).

I'm not sure I can do this faithfully every six hours during the entire vegetative process!
