**Co2 calculations...**
**1.** Measure and multiply: length x width x height of your grow room to calculate the volume of cubic feet
**2.** Generally, the c02 level in a grow room is 300 ppm. To
bring your room to an optimum level of 1 500 ppm, you will need to
raise the c02 by 1 200 ppm.
**3.** Multiply your room volume by 0.0012 (1 200 ppm = 0.0012) to determine how much c02 to add to your grow room.
**EXAMPLE:** a 10' x 8' x 10' room:
**1.** Volume= L x W x H
volume= 10 x 8 x 10 = 800 cubic feet
**2.** 800 cubic feet x 0.0012 =.96 cubic feet-- you can round
this to 1 cubic foot. You will therefore need to add 1 cubic foot of
c02 to a 10 x 8 x 10 grow room to bring the c02 level to 1 500 ppm. |
