Bump. Any thoughts on what this might be? I thought clado, but it's very short and kind of "furry". Seems like clado is longer and branching?

Thank you both. Sounds like it's mostly important to have stable CO2 from lights on to lights out - with stable meaning, effectively, at least enough to avoid being limiting. Above that level,...

Hi all -
