I’m not suggesting anyone add this to their grobo because of the variables involved such as space, but homemade co2 generators do work to increase co2 levels.
I used one 2 liter and one small Gatorade bottle (the more generators you have the more co2 you can produce)
The only issue is the lifecycle of the generators. Typically last a few days (some say a week, but I see steep declines after 48 hours) which creates quite a bit of maintenance. I change mine out every 48 hours.
Couple of bottles
Using fish tank tubing and super glue
Warm water (not hot)
I add some corn flakes and a little honey for food

A little background
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas that fills our atmosphere, and it’s essential for plants to complete the process of photosynthesis wherein plants convert CO2 into energy. High levels of CO2 in a cannabis garden can result in stronger plants with increased yields – if introduced correctly.
The benefits of introducing CO2 into a grow space are well known and widely accepted. However, if you’re a novice grower and/or under a tight budget, there might be a number of ways for you to initially increase your yields before investing in a costly CO2 system. Make sure you first know how to:
- Grow a healthy garden with a quality product
- Prevent and/or treat [mold] and [pest] infestations
- Set up a secure, sealed grow space
- Use an adequate high-powered light system
- Utilize quality strain genetics
- Use quality nutrients
