    I'm growing in a two door Borgen floral cooler. The fact that it's sealed tight gives me an opportunity to try CO2 injection.
    I have a regulator and timer, and have the acquisition of a tank in the works.
    Does anyone have a table or schedule of CO2 release so I can set up the seconds timer to try and hit an optimal CO2 level?

    You're going to have to do some experimentation, since the "tightness" of the chamber will determine the loss rate, and hence, the addition rate.

    Hydrofarm has instructions.

    Ray, Thanks a lot... Very valuable info for me.
    Ray, I have a specimen Den. thrysifolium that needs its own light until next summer. Tell me what I need and how I can get it from you?
    Firstrays?
