Get a old paint tub (2 gallon ish) drill a little hole in the lid 3 cups of sugar 2 tablespoon of dried active yeast fill halfway with water you will get plenty of CO2 and will cost you about a quid!!! .... for a small grow.... shake every couple of days.

Wow, does this really work??? That's an awesome solution. Tanks in my area run around $175, this would cost a fraction of that!

I'm sold on this. Got the supplies at my local grocery store tonight and I'm using an old coffee can. Gonna put it in my tent in the morning.

Thanks for the great tip!

Really like the bucket and yeast idea, been thinking of adding co2 to my grow closet. Just need to read up on how much for an area, and any safety concerns with higher co2 levels in the house.

CO2 doesn't affect people till around 5000 ppm (makes you woozy at that point)... Good CO2 levels for marijuana are around 1200-1500 ppm. I doubt this homemade CO2 device can get up to 5000 ppm and be dangerous for people. Without a controller or monitor there is no guarantee though.


Agreed. This thing isn't going to be producing any dangerous levels. Anything it produces will probably be immediately eaten up by the plants anyways. I think it's a brilliant idea and put mine in my tent this morning.

If you guys want to see this CO2 in action, I have posted a video in another thread: http://forum.grassci...tml#post9676716

The CO2 mixture is in the green can in the video. It's a big coffee can (from costco) fill it with sugar, 1 yeast packet and then fill the can with water - instant C02 and I can already see the benefits.
