I use a CO2 generator which, considering the previously mentioned heat issues maybe not the best way to do it, but once a grow is rolling, it's pretty impressive. Some things I found.... Keep them fed, If you know the strain likes to eat. Especially Calcium. I have a sealed room, I dont exhaust my air, just let the generator do its thing. It's on for less than a minute, then off for 20. I use a repeat timer, and a PPM meter, but no fuzzy logic controller here.

This last pic was 1 plant 18oz. The tall plant did 12. This was all gas. I feel I would have done just fine without it, but the gas made the buds show up. AND the quality was much better. Ironically, the tall plant had looser buds. It was a revegged plant. The first seasons buds were much denser. Kinda strange.

Lovely I think I’m going to go with a burner also.. I have a leak somewhere and I just discovered that my 20 pound tank is empty… man nothing can go smoothly it seems.. these vivosun tents aren’t the best tool in the shed by any means

It works well, but the gas is so easy to get. I have an 8 burner which is ridiculous for my room now, but I will be doubling the room size. My plan is to put in in a water heater closet outside the shed.

My room isnt actually isn't airtight. I have 3 6 inch holes to the outside they have filters but I haven't covered it yet. I will be going back to exhausting the air out in deep flower.

That would be fun. I've never tried it. I'm more into big plants I have 2 King Tuts that I'm gonna push to get big this season. I'm almost at 1 month they are growing fast, I'm not sure I'll make it to 2 months. I have a Dark Phoenix in soil also.

10x10, nice. My grow area is tiny only 4x6. The closet is less than 30inches square. I just got a seed order a month ago. King Tut was one of them. So fun to get seeds.
