CO2 for Plants

Showing all 5 results

CO2 is an essential component of plant photosynthesis, as it is combined with water and light to produce energy for the plant that allows it to grow. Whilst plants have naturally evolved to sequester the natural ambient concentrations of CO2 in the surrounding air, in closed environments, plants can quickly use up the CO2 in the atmosphere, meaning levels fall lower than desired.

CO2 for Hydroponics

Many farmers choose to use hydroponics and grow their plants in water over traditional methods of planting in the soil as the method can produce faster plant growth and healthier crops.

To increase plant productivity and efficiency in hydroponics, the use of CO2 is essential. When combined with the optimum levels of light, humidity and temperature, the addition of supplemental CO2 can bolster photosynthesis and plant growth. Not only does CO2 supplementation help ensure levels do not drop below the desired concentrations, but plants are actually capable of taking in more CO2 than natural background levels allow. Supplying additional CO2 gas can dramatically increase efficiency compared to traditional plant growth methods.

When to Add CO2 to Plants

Knowing when to apply CO2 to encourage healthy plant growth correctly is essential. Whilst CO2 is not required at nighttime, since photosynthesis happens during daylight hours, CO2 can be added pre-sunrise and is particularly beneficial on cloudy days. For those looking to stimulate plant growth at nighttime, CO2 can be used in conjunction with high-pressure sodium lighting.

Adding CO2 to seedlings or rootlings is particularly beneficial to those growing large quantities, and the gas applied during green growth stages can shorten the time it takes for plants to reach maturity.
