This numbers are separated and independent variables, there are an addictive effect or there is an maximum degree of increase? (if I do both methods, should I observe 28-62 + 40-60 % increase for O2?)I had 28-52% increase for O2 for the CO2 mist method and about 40-60% for the air exposure treatment. That's a lot more growth increase than folks normally ever see.
The exposure treatment could be compared to hydroponic Flood and Drain System, where roots are exposed alternatedly to air and hydroponic solution ?
So, would be better to start the CO2 mist some minutes before the lights on, for an additional increase in plants health? I am using a single timer for lights and CO2 solenoid valve.
Can be the same effect observed if we put a glass with air, inverted (like a bell position) and expose for some minutes the plants that are on the botton, or close to it, like carpets or anubias, and for this reason can´t be exposed to air during WC ?
