• Grow Room CO2 Calculator

    Our grow room CO2 calculator makes figuring out the ideal flow rate easy. Many growers trying to introduce additional carbon dioxide ask, “How much CO2 do I need for my grow room?”

    To use this CO2 Calculator, simply input the dimensions of your room. Our tool makes a few assumptions:
