Use of Yeast/Sugar water to add CO2 in closet
    #233250 - 05/28/09 12:34 AM (7 years, 6 months ago)

Hi friends,

  I'm using a yeast/sugar mix, instead of water, in my small humidifier which pumps C02 gas around my plants.  I keep the closet door open 6 inches when the light is off and I get plenty of fresh air from surrounding windows at my place. Is it really that beneficial?  I'm growing with dirt.

Also I was thinking of going hydro and pumping the C02 gas, instead of plain O2, thru a bubbler in the hydro setup.  Would that be much benefit?  The roots would get the most of it and whatever aerates out of the container. Thanks.:mushroom2::syringe:

a yeast/sugar setup will definitely produce higher-than-ambient levels of CO2, benefiting your plants.  many aquarium hobbyists use this simple setup to feed beautifully planted fish tanks.


DO NOT bubble CO2 to your roots.  roots use oxygen, not carbon dioxide.  O2 to roots, CO2 to foliage.

My problem with it is actually controlling the amount of gas and the length that gas is released. Given that you can do it with a tank and proper equipment for under $200, its worth thinking about.

a cheap method is baking soda and vinegar, the two combined let off c02, it doesn't last long in a bowl whatever, but if you have a 2 liter soda bottle, hole in the cap with a sealed tubing coming out of it and going to your plants it can be somewhat effective. its a real poor and tedious way of supplying c02 though.

"and take me disappearing, through the smoke rings of my mind,
down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
the haunted frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
far from the twisted reach, of crazy sorrow.
yes the dance, beneath the diamond sky, with one hand waving free,
silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
with all memory and fate, driven deep beneath the waves,
let me forget about today, until tomorrow."~bob dylan

So it sounds like it could be beneficial to have a mash fermenting in your grow room?  Would release co2 steadily for 2 weeks.  And when it stops producing c02, it's time to distill!  2 Birds with 1 stone:yesnod:

exactly, if you brew and grow, you might as well use one to supplement the other.

that's funny about making moonshine from it afterwords.  Sure, why not.  I agree with EG, a tank is the next step up.:mushroom2::syringe:
