InDoor c02?

Was thinking about growing some veggies inside, can do most, but the thing I'm not to sure about is making co2 for the plants, in the past i opened the window to let the outside air in the room
with the right P.P.M.
But now it's almost winter here in Wisconsin, so i don't want to let the cold air in, just to have the right co2, and then heat up the room. Tried the yeast/sugar setup but didn't have much luck with that. Today i searched the internet and found they have 5#,10#,15#, and 20# co2 thanks with regulators, and a on/off solenoid to open the tank, (without your help) but all that would be $300, that's a lot of cash just for co2, and then a 20# tank would have to be re-filled in a months timejavascript:void(0);

Is this going to be in a living space? I would be reluctant to introduce CO2 into living space. You make enough CO2 to keep plants going by just breathing. I would be more concerned about proper moisture and feeding. Others will chime in shortly, so hang on.

Now that you mention it the bananna tree next to my beer fridge is doing especially well. I wonder if I have a CO2 leak?

Yeah, you're standing by the fridge too long, emitting too much CO2.

Methane, too, probably.
