Why the CO2Bag?
The CO2Bag is very small and easily affordable bag producing carbon dioxide for your plants. It can multiply the growing speed of your plants and make fruits ripen faster improving taste, color and crops.
The CO2Bag is safe to use, easy to setup without any maintenance required. It is the smallest and by far the most effective solution available on the market.
What is carbon dioxide?
Being like the oxygen to us humans, carbon dioxide is one of the most important components of growing up plants. All plants need carbon dioxide to grow. If a plant cannot get enough carbon dioxide from the air, it will grow slower. The CO2Bag is a powerful and easy way to add more carbon dioxide to your green room without overspending.
When and where to use it?
Get a CO2Bag 2-3 weeks after planting your seeds. Make 6 holes in top of the bag and hang it above your plants. In large green rooms, hang the bag over the aisles. The CO2Bag only produces carbon dioxide in temperatures above 18 ºC (64 ºF). Store the closed bag in a dry and cool place under 18 ºC (64 ºF).
How long does it last?
When the CO2Bag comes into contact with oxygen, it will start producing carbon dioxide. However it can take a few days before production starts. Depending on the air circulation in the green room, one CO2Bag will produce enough carbon dioxide for an area of 5 m2 (50 ft2) for 1-3 months.
How to maximize the benefits?
With the extra carbon dioxide, your plants can withstand temperatures that are 3-5 ºC (5-9 ºF) higher than usual. This also causes your plants to need more water and nutrients. Remember to increase the amount of water, nutrients, and light in the room so that you can maximize the effects of the CO2Bag.
How do I store the bag before using?
In a cool and dry place below 18 ºC (64 ºF).
How does it work?
Make a few holes through the top of the bag. The powder inside starts to release carbon dioxide for your plants.
What does the bag contain?
Bag contains an invention which is based on ammonium bicarbonate (NH4HCO3).
Is it safe to use the CO2Bag?
Yes. However please follow the safety instructions coming with the bag.
How much does the bag weight?
One bag weights about 150 grams (5.3 ounces).
How should I install the bag?
In a dry place higher than plants but not directly above them.
What if fluids builds up at the bottom of the bag?
Take a pin and make a few holes at the bottom of the bag.
Why the bag has to be above plants?
Carbon dioxide is heavier than air so it slowly flows down.
What should I do with an empty bag?
Recycle as a plastic waste.
Is the bag suitable also for large green rooms?
Yes. You should increase the amount of bags based on the green room size. E.g. you should use 5 bags in an area of 50 m2 (1080 ft2).
Should I install the bag somewhere near a fan?
Yes. You should place a fan so that it spreads carbon dioxide evenly throughout the room.
On what temperatures the bag works?
Recommended temperature is +25 ºC (77 ºF).
Does not increase the CO2 Level.
I bought this because it seemed very convenient. It has a small footprint and should increase the CO2 level for multiple months. However I measured the CO2 level in different setups above 23-25 °C in a very small space. The CO2 ppm level is not increased. It stays around 300-500 ppm, which is the common level in a well ventilated room. You might even consider this a scam. A bag costs around 20 EUR and the content is basically standard raising agent for baking applications like in the kitchen...
