Compact CO2 emitter

Anyone have a good plan for a compact co2 emitter? The 2 liter bottle just takes up so much room. Maybe some small paintball tank? Or maybe a BB gun co2 cartridge?

Are you using the grobo co2?

Yes. It’s huge in the Grobo. Wanting something more compact if I can.

What @Bplatinum9 posted. However, they are cheaper on Amazon. At least in the US, not sure about Canada.

He’s just looking for a smaller style to better fit the grobo! :eyes::seedling:

What about just scaling it down to like a 20oz bottle?

What about the bag of co2?

Or a DIY…

Or something you can keep outside the grobo…

The bag idea is cool. I wonder if you could split it into smaller bags.

I’m using the bag right now, it seems to work quite well and I could have sworn I saw smaller ones available however I cannot find them now haha. I have my Grobo in a tent so I hung the bag behind the unit in an effort to have the Co2 flow in through the intake fans.

If I were to add co2 into my Grobo what I think I would do is what @SWSVIC did with the tent idea just I wouldn’t use bags.

I would get a tank of liquid Co2 come in may different sizes and get yourself a Co2 regular

Then I would feed this small line into the Grobo and have the Co2 fall on top of the plant

I like the third video its like what @Mpower11 is saying because I keep reading that the co2 needs to be close to the plant, and I wouldn’t want the canister inside the tent. :eyes::seedling:

I tried the bag and I didn’t really like it very much. It’s difficult to determine how much, if any, CO2 is being produced and how long they last. The thing that I like about the bottle is you can tell if it is working when you shake it up, which is also a bit of a downside. The Enhancer bottle is also smaller and I have found it is easier to place.

I used the Exhale bag in two different sizes and didn’t notice any increase in my tents CO2. Not sure if the Enhancer bottle is really enough to cover a 10 x 10 x 10 space as the manufactures claim, so there’s that.

What about just used a container with some holes in the top then add yeast water and sugar the off gas from that would be co2. Im testing it now and seams to be working.

To be fair I didn’t have much luck with the ExHale bags in my tent but it could be my exhaust system sucked it all out. When I tried it I had no way to control exhaust like I do now.

Don’t know how much co2 its producing but I went with a simple water bottle w/ yeast, sugar and water with a little piece of bread and stuck a length of tubing out the top into the canopy and has been producing co2 bubbles for a couple weeks now. Cost me a couple bucks
