  • how to make home made c02??

    Can somebody post up the recipe and instructions on how to make the home made c02 and regulator I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    You can make your own co2 bucket of any size. Choose your bucket size and use this recipe.

    For 5 gal. Bucket.

    1-5 gal. bucket with a lid. The lid will need a hole for the tubing in the top.
    2-A few feet of rubber tubing.
    3-10 lb. bag of sugar.
    4-4 1/2 gal. r/o water.
    5-a pack of dry brewer's ale yeast.

    It's important to be aware that yeast allowed to feed on sugar and deprived of oxygen will produce alcohol as a by product.

    Boil the water and add the sugar. Stir until all sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool to room temperature(must be room temp. or the yeast will be killed). Add the yeast to the bucket and cover with the lid. Insert the tubing into the hole in the lid and run around the top of your plants in your grow room. Poke a hole in the tubing with an awl near the top of each plant and cap the end of the hose. As the yeast feeds on the sugar it will produce co2 that will make it's way up the rubber tube seeping out through the small holes near each plant. co2 is heavier than oxygen and will slowly drop down over your plants.

    Be aware that if you're constantly venting your room the co2 will not have a chance to build up to useful levels. This is practical for small grow spaces only.

    The yeast may feed for up to 2-3 weeks depending on temps and concentration of sugar in the water.

    Regular bakers yeast can also be used but will be slower acting so more yeast may be needed to produce enough co2. Brewer's yeast is faster acting but will not last as long in the bucket.

    Good luck.

      IMO its not worth it unless ur doin a really small cab. grow or somethin similar. To many factors to go through first to set up proper Co2 with the right temps and shit let alone a nice sealed room to keep the levels high enough. Like i said all in my oppinion tho bro.

But yeah man idk give it a try and see what happens its not that expensive.

            Not trying to discourge you at all, but it

            Aint worth it.

            I am going to go out on a limb and say what I think some of those who do run CO2 say:

            Got to have a closed environment.

            If you go far enough to have a closed environment, you might as well get the real deal and not a fermentation by-product.

            The amount of CO2 being injected into the environment, for how long, and at what point has to be regulated.

            Basically, unless you are willing to put the time, research, and money into the CO2 endeavor, it aint worth it.

              So basically you are saying that even if I put the hoses around by the top of the plants its still not gonna work? I was planning on building a box so would that sufficient as a enclosed environment? I seen a video on youtube of a guy who was using a 2ltr bottle with the home made c02 mix in it but he didn't have any more videos after that one so I really don't know of his success or non success with that method.

                People do it (though I don't think they are doing much for themselves), but why be willing to commit to all the other aspects except tanks?

                Using CO2 requires dialing in a lot of factors is mostly what I am saying, and making toilet wine probably isn't the most efficient way of increasing growth.

                  Right right I dig it. I was just wanting to maximize my potential for having some good yields from my grow.

                    Just increase airflow though the box. More air means more CO2 passing by the plant.
                    CO2 is to Plants as Protein is to Humans.
                    Nutes are to Plants as Vitamins are to Humans.

                        fuck it, i'ma gonna try it!!..... i'ma mutha-fuckin' scientist!!! ooooOOOO-RA!!

                        (i think you should do it as well)....make the CO2 drip right on the plants, as CO2 is heavier than air, it will trickle down like heavy smoke.
                        and how much wont matter as i think the concentration will be not toxic, and not earth moving, but might get us some more, weed, or it wont...

                        but after you try it, you will be able to say either one or the other.

                        not before.

                        1)it works, cuz i tried it.
                        2)itz a myth, dont waste yer time.

                        i cant afford a tank, regulator, switches, monitors, and all that shit. i can however, buy a fuckin' bucket, a 10 lb bag of sugar, and some yeast, mmmk?

                        the wright brothers didnt start by building a mig., or an F-18fighter jet.
                        they started with a piece of shit i'm off to wally world to buy bucket!

                          LOL! I already got my stuff tiger! My box is only gonna be 4'x5'x6' so its not that much room and its all gonna be sealed up so yea I'm gonna do it just to see cuz it might make a difference. I know growers have done it before, that's where I got the idea from so yea we'll see what happens...

                              Items Required:

                              * 10lb. white sugar
                              * 5 gallon clean bucket W/lid
                              * 4 1/2 gallons of water
                              * A piece of toast browned and hard
                              * A table spoon of dry active yeast (for baking bread)

                              First boil the water, (this will ensure clean water) remove from the heat and add the sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Let cool until water is room temperature (if you don't let it cool down it won't work).

                              After the sugar water has cooled, float the piece of toast on top of the water. Now, empty the tablespoon of yeast over the toast. After a few days, the yeast will take over the toast and start making bubbles (CO2) in the bucket. After a week, the amount of bubbling (CO2) will increase.

                              Keep the lid airtight on the bucket. CO2 travels up the dispersion tubing, and due to it being heavier than air, falls directly onto your plants. Timing your exhaust, is essential in maintaining an effective level of CO2.

                              Editors Note: Unfortunately the author of this contribution has not been able to test the CO2 levels produced using his method. Personally, I would use a CO2 analysis kit to help manage (exhaust timing etc), and maintain, an optimum level of around
