I been looking at the TNB bottles

My question is how should I educate myself moving forward using this. I have never added straight CO2 before so I have no idea what to expect. Should I run these during the whole cycle? Or is there a peak time ex: bloom week 2 -7 or something? How should I monitor how much is in the room?

I appreciate any and all feedback. Thank you.

Save your money and google how to make your own.Then once you realize it doesn't do much, youll be glad you didn't buy one.lol.

What type of grow are you running? Is it a tent, a room? Is it being vented for cooling or do you use an AC / sealed room? If you are venting the space then you will blow out the CO2 faster than it is produced.

Sealed room but not a space station sealed... I am heating the room at night as it gets a little cold back there but my light keeps it at 78 during the day. Ummmm 9x9 by 7 feet tall. No tent. It is being vented. Humidity at 54%. Hope this answers all questions and yes I seen it's best to shut of exhaust while introducing the co2. Thanks

Thank you also to myke as I learned you can make co2 with baking soda and vinegar. Also came across this vid from Lex Blazer that helped a bit:

That big of a room will be hard to enrich.
The bottle will be useless
If you get a 4x4 tent, and buy a co2 bucket, you might be in business. But then you have to worry about humidity and temp in the tent without venting and wasting co2
Only way to co2 enrichment your whole room would be with a co2 controller and a tank, (or a burner, but thats a whole nother' beast)
