Co2 For Plants?
Is that what I should be using as a plant food or is there a better product? Thank you so much for your time and any answers provided. Blessings!
Pressurised co2 is thee most effective, & co2 in gas form works a lot better. -Mak- knows a lot on this subject I believe.
Co2 isn’t plant food. It helps plants take in nutrients faster, along with high light and fert dosing. Mak can definitely explain it better.
If you want plant food then I would recommend an all in one fert like easy green or Thrive, seachem comp works too but it doesn’t have all the necessary nutrients needed in plants.
Thank you so very much!
CO2 supplies carbon, which makes up a very large amount of a plant's dry mass. I believe it's something near 50% of a plant is carbon if water is taken out. Some aquarium plants absolutely need CO2, some can survive without but won't do too well, and some plants get sufficient amounts from the water. Aquarium water has about 4-5 ppm of CO2 on its own, injecting CO2 gets it to 30-40 ppm, but more will kill fish. The air has 300-400 ppm.
Like bryanger said, Thrive is a good liquid fertilizer, and supplies macronutrients and micronutrients Info Before You Buy Flourish And Ferts In General
