Default CO2 Injectors for Land Plants? Yes yes OT OT, I know...

Is there something similar to Co2 injectors that would work for land
plants? I have a few ferns that I'd like to try to get to grow better
by adding co2. Anyone know if it would work?

I was thinking of maybe covering them with a bag or something and
putting a 2 liter open soda in with the plant. As the co2 left the
soda it should be available for the plant, right?

Anyone know of a web site that would have done experiments in this
area? Maybe graph plant growth vs CO2 PPM?


Thanks
RC

The last time I looked at this all I found was the homwgrown pot crowd
were doing it. They seem to be the only ones.

I agree - If I wanted to do co2 for plants I would look on the web for pot
growing links.

I would be telling an untruth if I said that the thought did not
occurred to me that everyone would be thinking that was what I was
trying to grow.
But if it is good for the aquatic plants, it must be good for my fern,
and my fern is in need of some help. So I'll figure it out.
Or maybe I'll ask around in the "Head" groups. I'm not prejudice.

Oddly enough I just watch a show on Hemp. I am not sure of the
difference between Hemp and Cannabis, but man, they were making
everything out of Hemp. It was quite impressive as a resource.

It's all Cannabis, but "hemp" is a rope-grade non psychoactive strain.

It grows wild in areas of this county as it self seeds and
has been around since before the 30's when it was grown for
the fibres to make rope. It's pretty amusing to see it.

Bit late to the conversation, but I just discovered that hydroponics
hobbyists do this all the time. They enclose the garden in a tent or
similar. I asked the guy at the store if it's dangerous to go in a
tent full of CO2, he said plants are like the canary in the mine,
they're sensitive to high concentrations of CO2: if they die, you don't
go in the tent, otherwise it's harmless.

In our area, hydroponics doesn't have to mean pot-head, could be
someone growing home garden vegetables.

While doing some searching on aquaculture and hydroponics (for amazon
sword cuttings) I found that they make large CO2 generators for whole
greenhouses (they use propane or natrual gas, sounds more like CO than
CO2 to me...). Give it a shot...
