I have been having all kinds of trouble with my hagen plant gro co2. After 3 days still very little bubbles from my hagen (1 or 2 a min) I have changed the tubing also. took lid of again and not much going on inside. Can I add yeast to the old mix or should I start from scratch?

Start from scratch. If you have some premix, use that. If not you can use a DIY sugar /yeast mix, it should work fine.

The yeast take a long time to get back to work after the lid has been opened. Had you opened it once or several times?

I have replaced the mix and I'm getting bubbles but only two or three a min. Will the amount of bubbles increase?? or is somthing still wrong . I moved the canister and the tube is only about a foot long.
