Co2 Lamp Oil 1 Litre

Co2 commonly known as Carbon Dioxide is in the air you’re breathing right now. 

The amount of Co2 in the air we breath is approximately 300-400 ppm which works out to be about 0.03-0.04% You can get great benefits from adding more Co2 to your grow room, most species of plants will benefit from an increase in Co2 to 1200-1500 PPM which is 0.12-0.15% Co2 content in the grow room air.

All plants do need Co2 as part of the process of making energy from light via photosynthesis, without sufficient Co2 your plants will suffer 

Increasing the Co2 levels allows your plants to use more of the available light, which results in increased photosynthesis. Your plants will produce more energy from the same amount of light when extra Co2 is used. In return you will notice faster more vigorous growth resulting in a bigger and better overall yield

Co2 oil will not burn without a wick. Even if you drop a lighten match in a drum of oil it
will go out. The oil is not classed as flammable, meaning you don't have to worry about safety.

The wick should not burn, it should soak up the oil and it is the oil vapour that burns. This means your wicks will last from many months to many years. This oil is very slow burning, most lamps burn between 5ml and 8 ml per hour. This will vary due to your environment air circulation etc. Avoid inexpensive lamp oils because they tend to smoke and emit a stronger odour. Never use kerosene, alcohol, gasoline, paint thinner or acetone as an alternative as they are unsafe.
