The secret to faster growing plants:
Greenhouse, indoor gardener and hydroponic growers know the benefit of increased carbon dioxide levels – as well as proper temperature and humidity – for plant growth. Plants combine CO2 with light, water and nutrients for photosynthesis, the chemical reaction that feeds plant growth.
Even if a plant has the perfect amount of light, water and nutrients, the limiting factor in the process of photosynthesis will be the amount of carbon dioxide available.
Fortunately for greenhouse growers and indoor gardeners, hundreds of scientific experiments have been conducted to determine optimal CO2 levels. Studies show:
After you’ve spent hundred – or even thousands – of dollars creating the perfect growing environment, only a real-time CO2 monitor guarantees that your plants are actually getting the right amount of CO2.
