Greetings from sunny Florida.
I have a 2 tier/3 module per tier (6 plants) system growing cukes, cherry toms and Basil. I am about to make a DIY Co2 generator and was considering the best way to get the gas into my farm….has anyone tried this yet?
To generate Co2 I am going to use the simple yeast/sugar method.
1 gallon milk jug, tubing drilled tightly into the lid, 1 cup sugar, 1 heaping tbsp yeast, warm water.
This will generate plenty of Carbon Dioxide, no problem. My concern is distribution….has anyone used this and if so how’d you get it distributed to your farm and was it pretty even? I am considering running the tubing out of the bottles (I’ll make 2 of course) straight up to the top of each tier with T’s attached to small lengths of tubing inserted into each plant along the way. Anyone?
Also, in my DIY Co2 generator research I found a couple of different plans that called for ”CO2 proof Tubing”….what is that? Is it necessary for tubing to be Co2 PROOF? Does the gas eat away at the tubing or something?
