EZ CO2 is a natural, safe, and inexpensive way of providing your plants with carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 tanks and generators can be expensive and time consuming, but EZ CO2 requires no set up or maintenance and is easy on your budget!
The benefits of increased CO2 levels within a greenhouse are widely accepted and understood, and often include earlier flowering, higher yields, improved stem strength, and larger flower size. This is because plants use the process of photosynthesis to convert water, sunlight, and CO2 into sugars and other materials essential to their growth and overall nutrition. When there is more CO2 in the air, plants become more efficient at absorbing it and processing it. Faster conversion of CO2 into sugars and nutrients results in faster plant growth. Additionally, plants take in CO2 through small pores on the underside of their leaves called stomata. When the levels of CO2 are higher, the plants do not need to open up these pores as often or as wide, resulting in less water loss and reduced likelihood of taking in damaging air pollutants.
