Hi guy's
Anybody ever try c02 injected into the air pump inlet hose?
If so is it a good idea or what?
I can't find any info.
Aquarium plants love it and I'm sure the weeds above water like it too. lol
Piece out ey!

Dont do it buddy, roots need oxygen not co2

You'll make carbonic acid and kill your plant.
Roots need oxygen; CO2 is for Photosynthesis.

Go on, do it.!!! I dare you.

Thanks guy's
But I did run tubing from the outside air to my inlet on the air pump and have explosive results almost instantly.
Now the roots and plants have fresh air 24/7
This works good where I live because were still in winter...4 inches yesterday.:help:

CO2 above stem, O2 below stem. Dont get it the wrong way round :)
