Was just wondering if co2 is a must in a grow room or could just a good pure oscallating fan with good ventilation do the job! (Also heard it lowers potency) 400 watt mh 600 watt hps room size 56"x56"x79 thanks!:rock

co2 has many benefits. Most pests hates a enriched co2 environment and will not thrive. This goes for molds as well. But being that you want to add co2. That means you'll probably have a sealed room. So keep in mind humidity control and cooling (ac). If it's a smaller room you can look into co2 tank set ups as burners will probably overheat the space or overwork your ac. 1800ppm is the max saturation level as Indie said. But any higher than the usual and you will see benefits.

18000 ppms will kill your plants and probably you also. I have ran co2 for years and I have never seen it help with pests or mold either.

I think co2 helps 100% when everything else is dialed in correct. I wouldnt trade mine in for nothing but a cooled one.

if you didn't see co2 making it harder for pest to live and you currently have pest or mold, than something else is wrong. I have found that plants not resistant to mold fending off mold better in a co2 enriched environment.

and I didn't mean 18,000 ppm i meant 1800. :headbang

CO2 also affects the morphology of the plants making them sturdier and produce denser and more proliferate bud sites. With the proper temperature, humidity, ventilation, nutrient concentration, and CO2 enrichment, one can expect to get at least 75% more bud sites and weight gain than without these factors.
