    make a 2 litre solution of sugar, warm water and a brewers yeast tablet, available at home brew suppliers. place the open container in your grow space and replace weekly. as it ferments the solution will produce half the volume of sugar consumed as gas. another way is to mix vinegar with baking soda, which froths up releasing CO2, you'll need about a teaspoon of soda repeated a couple of times a week.

    you could burn a candle but thats really unsafe to leave a candle on all day. Holding your breath for a long time and releasing it is the cheapest possible way. even though we breathe out more o2 than co2, its still good.

    1500ppm is best , normal air is roughly 900ppm. also u can try a product called no mercy co2 tabs. cheap and give great results.

    u can also use a gas l.p.g heater or light burnig l.p.g in any way will produce co2..... just don't burn your room down....that would be far toooo much

    1 Carbonated water works well
    2 any sort of stove,heater with a blue want carbon dioxide not carbon minoxide
    3 of course bottled co2 and generators work well but very pricy and to get the optimal co2 levels you need a controller/monitor .You could have $1000 or more in it easy

    Forget the baking soda and vinegar thing, and I think its impossible for CFLs to PRODUCE CO2, carbonate water loses its carbonation after being exposed to air after a few hours (ever had coke without fizz... how long did that take?) but if you are on a budget and cant afford CO2 tanks you have got to check this link out...

    This excellofizz is probably the cheapest way to get CO2 throughout the flowering cycle, unless you want to buy 3 pounds of bicarbonate soda and a couple gallons of vinegar and stink up the house.... this Excellofizz stuff is amazing and hasslefree. -Peace

    According to The Urban Grower ......1800 ppm is optimal in all spaces......for an approximate increase of 35% on yeild..... happy growing
