Carbon dioxide (CO2) has been boosting medical marijuana gardens for years by significantly increasing yields and enhancing overall growth. With the proper use of CO2, yields can be increased by as much as 30%. There are many methods to emit CO2 into your garden, although two are most popular with medical marijuana horticulturalists. One popular method, generally done in smaller sized grow rooms, is to use compressed gas tanks with a regulator. The other most popular choice is the burning of propane or natural gas, which is generally used in larger areas or by commercial growers.
Regardless of which method of CO2 enrichment you use, a gardener must decide how to control it. Manual release or timer based enrichment can achieve some success, but these methods are inefficient and inconsistent, making your investment in CO2 equipment hardly worth it. A CO2 controller, generally used in conjunction with an atmospheric or fan controller, is a wise purchase for maximizing CO2 consistency and efficiency.
The SPC-1 (or "Set Point Controller") by Green Air Products is a very high quality introductory carbon dioxide controller. The SPC-1 is a simple plug and pay device containing both the control module and the CO2 sensor in the same unit. The device comes factory calibrated and offers an elevation adjustment feature for fine tuning. The built-in photosensor allows the SPC-1 to disable CO2 output during the garden’s dark cycle when CO2 is useless for plants.
As with all their controllers, Green Air Products encases this sensitive equipment in a black, powder coated aluminum casing, ready to handle any garden’s rugged atmosphere. Setting the desired PPM of CO2 is as simple as pressing a button and the easy-to-read green LED digital screen makes monitoring the SPC-1 a snap, without disturbing your plant’s dark cycle.
