I heard a rumor that if you fill your growth room full of co2 it will make the plants grow twice as fast and it also then creates oxygen. So i was thinking about trying this , but i would like some feedback to see if im not wasting my time. Any information would be nice:smoking:

Nutrients, water, light and co2, and a little o2 are what they need, so yes, co2 is good for plants

be nice guys.....silly question or not.

Now, i'm sure we have clarified that, YES, co2 does help the MJ plant.

I have never used it myself but am very interested in yeild difference.

Do most ppl use it just in flowering or through the VEG cycle too??

what's all needed to safely use this.....Tank, regulator, timer(got one on my climate controller).
what else did i miss?

Plants use CO2 for photosynthesis. More CO2 = more photosynthesis = more energy for the plants = bigger plants. This is assuming that all of the other requirements (light, water, nutrients) are not the limiting factors. In other words, if you're only using a 5 watt bulb over your plants, pumping the room full of CO2 isn't going to get you much. But if you have a 1000w light over them, good balanced nutrients/soil and plenty of water (or a proper hydro setup), the extra CO2 will indeed promote plant growth.

No, it is just a rumor. Please box up all of your co2 and send it to me.


I'll breathe in a box and send it to you if you pay shipping :wave:
