Integration Co2 (By Barudda70)



 

INTEGRATION DIOXIDE CARBON - co2 (by Barudda70)



The integration of co2 is considered the largest secret weapon to have an abundant harvest of fruits and flowers. Add co2 to your garden and it will bring about substantial benefits. You will have growth rates and final results undoubtedly better and more abundant. To achieve these results, it is not sufficient enough to have only one cylinder of co2 and a related gauge. First of all we need to have a garden that presents certain unique features. First and foremost we analyze, in detail, a chemical level, the results, what processes we carry out and the causes of carbon dioxide, carbon and its composed molecules. It is essential to plan for creating new organic cells. Plants needs light, especially ultraviolet rays, in order to grow. From this, plants draw the necessary energy to carry the process of chlorophyll photosynthesis. This important process that is behind the life of each plant species requires two particular elements:

1. A certain amount of light
2. A sufficient amount of co2 providing the necessary carbon atoms of which the plant uses for the formation of new organic matter.

Plants have a capacity that human beings and animals don’t have. They are able to transform carbon into an organic substance. Through the process of chlorophyll photosynthesis from carbon dioxide(co2), the plant separates the carbon molecule (C) from the oxygen (O), which is released into the air, while using the molecule organic carbon (C) to carry out certain chemical processes which transforms the various elements into nutrients and produces new organic material.
To transform carbon into an organic substance certain types of enzymes have to have a precise capacity. These have a maximum speed reaction that increases in proportion to the concentration of co2 present in the air, so this speed of organic transformation increases in proportion to the volume of co2 present, however, coming to a limit beyond which these enzymes can not go. When these enzymes come to their maximum amount, increasing the amount of co2 won’t get any precise results because the enzymes have already reached the apex of organic transformation possible.

The only way then to make sure that the co2 we add, in addition to the already present, to be able to transform is to increase the number of enzymes.
We have previously seen that plants, through the light, draw the necessary energy to ensure that the process of photosynthesis is carried out. To get that co2 we add the organic transformation as the enzymes have a maximum reaction speed beyond which they can not go, it is wise to have a good amount of light. So the first essential and crucial order of the co2 we add to be organically transformed is to have a lamp with enough wattage. To make sure they have the right outcome we must have at least a 400W power light.

To properly provide co2 we must have the following items:

  1. CO2 bottle.
  2. Pressure reducer/pressure gauge with end valve.
  3. Software for calculating the daily supply.
  4. Electro-valve for controlling opening and closing of the CO2 plant.
  5. Digital Temperature timer C02 plant.

We have now seen that with the correct integration of co2 will undoubtedly give impressive results, but let us have no influence as these operations are reserved for expert growers!
