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 reaches levels detrimental to plants. If you have time to experiment, it is possible to set up a drip system operated by a solenoid valve and a short-term timer. With such a system, CO , could be released periodically in small increments and coordinated with ventilation schedules.

Note: Some recipes replace vinegar with muriatic (hydrochloric) acid. I advise using vinegar, because hydrochloric acid is very dangerous. It can burn flesh, eyes, and respiratory system; it can even burn through concrete.


A good exhaust fan, vented outdoors, is the first step in cannabis odor control and the easiest way to keep the house from reeking of fresh marijuana. If the odor is strong and venting is a problem, a negative ion generator (deionizer); deodorizing liquid, gel, puck, or spray; ozone generator; activated charcoal filter; or a combination of two or more of these will solve fragrance problems.
