Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is critical for all plants. Normal atmospheric air around the world averages about 380 Parts-Per-Million (PPM.) When plants are provided higher levels of carbon dioxide, they can grow faster and larger. It is normally agreed by experts that up to 1500 PPM is beneficial to plants and the best way to increase the CO2 level is by using a CO2 generator that burns either natural gas or propane.
The Sentinel VCG-27 has two models, the LP (propane) and an NG (natural gas) model. Both come complete with (10) clean burning brass burners pre-installed and the appropriate regulator and hose.
