The Green Pad CO2 Generators are an innovative and very easy way to supplement your indoor grow environments with Carbon Dioxide. CO2 will give you Higher Yields and healthier plants.
The Green Pads look like sheets that hang above the canopy or are inserted in a clone dome then they start absorbing the garden or domes humidity to power its CO2 generating reaction.
Made from all natural chemicals, that when exposed to humidity, begin a measured CO2 release. Without expiration issues use the The Green Pad CO2 Generators when your garden needs them.
Keep unused Green Pad CO2 Generators in original sealed package untill you need them.
Just 35%+ humidity is needed to begin the Green Pads CO2 reaction and release.
By lightly misting the Green Pads, you can increase that activation to fit your gardens needs.
With a full line of Green Pad CO2 Generators now available starting in sizes for clone domes,
grow tents and now larger gardens.
FAQ GARDENING HYDROPONIC
CO 2 HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER OR MORE EFFECTIVE
Are plants in the cloning stage too small to benefit from enriched CO2?
Eric Hopper doesn’t think so.
He explains why using CO2 during the cloning stage reduces pathogens and gives young plants a better chance at survival.
Many indoor horticulturists are reaping the benefits of enriched CO2 levels in their vegetative and blooming rooms. Increased CO2 levels can maximize the rate of photosynthesis and, in turn, increase the rate of growth. It is common for growers who supplement CO2 to see not only faster growth, but also larger yields. When done correctly, and everything else is equal, a growroom enriched with CO2 will simply outperform a growroom without it. However, while most growers agree that there are definite benefits of CO2 enrichment in the vegetative and blooming rooms, there is an ongoing debate about the benefits of CO2 in a cloning area. Some growers argue that the plants in the cloning stage are too little to benefit from enriched CO2, while others argue all plants, regardless of size, benefit from CO2. CO2 enrichment during the cloning stage, when done correctly, can increase the speed at which a plant creates roots, as well as increase success rates by eliminating or reducing potential pathogens. FASTER ROOTING Increased CO2 levels in the cloning area are beneficial when supplied to the cuttings’ leaves. So, if a grower is using an aeroponic or mister-type cloning machine, the CO2 should be added to the area where the leaves are and not to the area where the roots are (or will be). When the leaves have access to enriched CO2 levels, photosynthesis can occur at a faster rate. The sugars created in this process are important fuels that provide the cuttings with the energy they need for making roots. In other words, raising the CO2 levels increases the speed at which these valuable sugars can be produced. If the sugars needed for energy can be produced more quickly, the cuttings can, in turn, create roots more rapidly. Faster rooting means young plants can be transitioned into the vegetative stage and acclimated to a new environment sooner. Generally speaking, the faster the clones can develop roots, the higher the overall success rate of cloning
“PERHAPS THE BEST SOLUTIONS FOR ADMINISTERING CO 2 TO CLONES ARE THE CO 2 PADS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR CLONING CHAMBERS.”
There are a few different ways a grower can increase the CO2 level in the cloning area. . However, too much of a good thing can be bad. When using a CO2 system designed for a large area, a grower should be cautious to avoid the CO2 levels getting too concentrated. For clones, CO2 levels between 1,000-1,300 ppm should be the maximum. Levels above this can be counterproductive as the available oxygen gets displaced by CO2. The roots (or potential roots) need some oxygen to develop and thrive. Growers who choose to use CO2 burners or compressed tanks with injector systems need to have a CO2 monitor/controller so the CO2 levels can be kept in check. Perhaps the best solutions for administering CO2 to clones are the CO2 pads specifically designed for cloning chambers. These pads can be placed directly into a standard propagation tray and dome and are activated by the humidity within (or when the clones are misted with water). The CO2 pads are made from natural chemicals which, when exposed to humidity, begin to release CO2. Since the pads are made specifically for propagation trays and cloning,
THE GREEN PADS have been reviewed, tested, and proven effective in dozens of independent tests and also featured in the last 3 editions of "The Grow Book and Equipment Guide."
THE GREEN PADS have been product spotlighted in Maximum Yield, I News, and Grozine magazines, as well as other popular, grow books and magazines.
It takes about 35+ % Humidity to activate and produce a measured release of CO2.
Higher humidity or frequent light water misting increases activation.
Use a damp sponge in a folded Green Pad for drier climates.
How many GREEN PADS do I need for my room?
THE GREEN PAD works best in small to mid-size gardens
Use at least 1-2 pads per 200-400 cubic feet of space
Add more GREEN PADS to increase CO2 Levels for larger rooms or use
THE GRAND DADDY PAD in gardens with 800+ cubic feet for each GDP
DO NOT SATURATE OR ALLOW TO DRIP
Our tests in a room 10' x 10' x 10' (1000 cubic feet) with 3 Green Pads at 60% humidity and minimal air exchange produced 1000+ ppm.
The amount of fresh air exchange plays a major role in the containment of the CO2 and the room's levels.
To maximize performance, LIGHTLY misting the pads before closing the room will increase concentrations. DO NOT SATURATE OR ALLOW TO DRIP.
NO! Very Important. Do not cut the Green Pads. You will compromise them.
Often overlooked and underappreciated, adding CO2 to your propagation dome promotes faster rooting and healthier starting plants. Inexpensive and extremely easy, The GP JR's have become an insider's trick to increase strike rates and move healthy rooted cuttings to veg faster.
Use only the GREEN PADS you need at a time. Keep unused pads dry and resealed in the original bag, and they will be effective for over one year or more.
