For example, a full point movement in pH represents a tenfold increase in...

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Consider using vinegar and baking soda to produce CO, in a small grow room. This method eliminates excess heat and water vapor production and requires only household items. Create a system that drips vinegar (acetic acid) into a bed of baking soda. The main disadvantage of this system is the erratic level of CO, produced. It takes a considerable amount of time for the CO, to build up to a level where it helps plants. However, once it reaches an optimum level, it can continue to rise until it...
