IT CAME FROM A COUPLE OF IDEAS
brought forth by some of the greatest minds in the garden, one of them
is Ed Rosenthal who I owe a lot of credit to and encourage everyone to
pick up his Grow Bible whether you are a new or seasoned grower. He
covers areas of growing you never even thought of or maybe forgot; one
of them, C02 intake is a vital part of a plant's requirements for
optimum growth. In the city C02 levels can be as high as 500ppm whereas
your healthy plant can take in up to 1500ppm.
As per Ed, you can double your plant’s size and yield by using C02 vs. without.
I started out last spring in mid-May to try and force my plants to
flower by putting them into a “dark room or dark shed.” In this case my
flowering room in which I turned off the lights for the summer and
turned it into a dark room or dark shed.
With forced flowering you let your plants have sunlight from 6am to 6pm
then put them into darkness and return to the yard a couple hours after
dusk. This was repeated daily for the next 60 days or until mid-July
when the plants would finish flowering, yet another read from Ed’s book.
So having a C02 tank in my normal grow room I wanted to enhance the
growth of my plants outdoors so I drilled out some holes on the feeder
line that came off the C02 tank, then draped the feeder line over the
plants every morning as they would soak up the rays from the sun during
the day. This was working out fine during the first couple of weeks of
flowering until the resin showed up and started getting all over the
feeder hose. This became a problem and my first thought was to use wire
hanger to use a guide and to tie the feeder line to keep it off the
buds. This worked for a little while but I needed a better solution.
