Mastering CO2

Hey everybody, I’ve been using CO2 for one and a half grows now. The first grow didn’t seem like it made a difference. I was pumping out 1000 parts per million all through the grow until I did some research. I started running 700 PPM through veg and cranked the room to 82° I hear when you flower you should have it up from 1200 to 1500 PPM. Can anybody tell me the ideal temperature for my room at that amount of CO2

I like a leaf temperature of 80 I run 900 ppm co2 thru the cycle. my experience says dont go above 1100 ppm because i notice some necrosis when i do. I am sure some one will disagree but thats what i do.

Don’t be a bitch!! Lol just kidding it’s not like it’s mustard gas. All you need to do is put together the right setup and make sure you have a CO2 monitor

Sounds like you could easily put a rain style CO2 system in there feeding through all the tents

I am thinking of moving my tents into another room. I have a 20’ x 12’ room i can move my tents. But i was thinking of getting a bigger tent. But i do like having separate tents to flower at different times.

That’s a lot of tents! Why don’t you just divide the room into two and have a veg room and flower room

Well…i have an addiction to cloning. Im actually moving into tissue culture cloning. I am cutting clones every 3-4 weeks. And i maintain them all as living strains. I mother the plants long enough to sex them and chop them up and to fill my tents. Then i grow them out sea of green style. And i stage my cuttings so im always harvesting every month. And i rotate strains as the baby clones become my mothers.
My hash passion


Its the bigger one.

These are the same plant but cloned and topped.

And this is the same plant the best of 8 shoots i clipped off.

And here is the mother tonight shes a monster!

Oh i also forgot i run a lighting system and grow my plants with many different lights. I go t5 led with uvb and uva, then quantum borad, then MH. And depending which tent is finishing 1st. I go either HPS or a higher powered quantum board set up. I like to swap the lights up and i have the tents set a certain way. So i can move to different tents at each stage of the plants groth. And it give me a minute to cycle and clean the tents as i go along. This way i never stop growing. But i want to go on vacation and need to get my tissue culture done so i can leave for a while and relax.

Yes i like the set up. To bad you cant get mylar rolls there. But those solar blankets work well. Nice garden. Do you lolly pop and run fans under the canopy?

Yes, I just found some mylar I’m about to go grab a couple rolls and redo the room

Wow that will be slick. I had a grow room in 1997 in my friends basement bathroom. I removed all the fixtures so it was just a room and i got 10 rolls of mylar. And it was a nice room.
