i just installed my co2 system... i set it for 1500ppm works good so far.... but i have spider mites and i want to kill them... i was told to use co2 and rase the level to 10000ppm for one hour and it will kill them.. my unit only reads 6000ppm how can i tell when i get to 10000ppm and can this hurt the plants...:smokin3:

dude get you some neeam oil based products and take care of that...im not sure if raising co2 levels will kill them but i wouldnt risk it...make sure the products are not harmfull to humans or you will be fucked if you smoke your stash

pyrethrum aerosol will kill them or Neem oil. I don't think raising the co2 level will do anything for ya. Try dropping the room temps down to 60-70 degrees and splashing your palnts with cold water to rinse the mites off. Also keep the humidity level below 50%. Mites love the 60%+ Rh and temps of 70-80F.

i will try the neem oil.. but i have tried azatrol / soy / bug bombs, nothing has worked. i was told that neem oil slows the growth of the plants. i don't want this because they are growing so good. two weeks in to flower and i have buds the size of my finger nail. i don't want the spider mites to damage my buds.

The plants can't use more than about 2000 PPM, and the concensus is that 1250-1500 PPM is ideal. At about 5000 PPM humans are in danger. Also keep your room temps under 85F to keep the growth happening.
