Improve Plant Growth with Exhale CO2 Bag

Enhance your indoor plant growth and yield with the Exhale CO2 Bag, a maintenance-free and cost-effective solution to provide carbon dioxide (CO2) for your plants 24 hours a day. It utilises a mycelial mass inside the vented cultivator to generate CO2 continually for up to 6 months, enriching the photosynthesis process and benefitting plant health and growth.

Features and Benefits

  • Continuous CO2 production: Generates CO2 24 hours a day, without the need for refill bottles or expensive production units.
  • Maintenance-free: No heat or electricity required, just hang the bag in your grow space and let it work.
  • Easy to use: Simply hang the bag slightly above the height of your plants to provide a continuous shower of CO2 for 4-6 plants (128 cu ft).
  • Efficient plant growth: Enhanced CO2 levels lead to improved plant maturity rates, root growth, water use efficiency, and an increase in final crop yield.
  • Long-lasting: The CO2 bag releases CO2 for up to 6 months, providing long-term benefits for your plants.

How to Use

  1. Choose the suitable Exhale CO2 Bag based on your grow space and the number of plants. The regular size is best for 4-6 plants (128 cu ft).
  2. Hang the Exhale CO2 Bag slightly above the height of your plants to ensure optimal CO2 exposure.
  3. Leave the CO2 bag in your grow space without any need to turn it on or off.
  4. Replace the CO2 bag after 6 months, or when CO2 production has ceased.

Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

The Exhale CO2 Bag is ideal for indoor gardeners and hydroponic growers who want to maximise plant growth, maturity, and yield in their grow space. It is suitable for both vegetative plant growth as well as fruit and flower production.

Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • Ensure adequate ventilation and circulation in your grow space to prevent mould growth and maintain a healthy environment for your plants.
  • Keep the Exhale CO2 Bag away from direct sunlight, excessive heat, or sources of ignition as it may damage the bag, reduce its effectiveness, or pose a fire hazard.
  • Do not puncture or attempt to open the vented cultivator, as it contains the mycelial mass responsible for CO2 production and may cause the loss of CO2 or damage the bag.


How long do ExHale CO2 bags last?

ExHale CO2 bags can last anywhere from 6 months to a year, depending on the type of bag you choose. The Original and XL bags last 3 to 6 months and are ready to produce CO2 as soon as they are opened. The Exhale 365 bags have a ramp-up period of up to 2 months until they reach maximum CO2 production, but then they last up to 12 months.

How do I know if my plants need more CO2?

If your plants are growing indoors under artificial light and seem unhealthy or have stunted growth, they may not be receiving enough CO2 for efficient photosynthesis. Adding an ExHale CO2 bag to your grow space can help improve plant maturity rates, enhance root growth, increase water use efficiency, and potentially increase your final crop yield.

How much CO2 does an ExHale bag produce?

One ExHale bag continuously releases CO2 for up to 6 months, providing a continuous shower of CO2 directly onto 4-6 plants in a 128 cubic feet area. This ensures that your plants receive the carbon dioxide they need 24 hours a day for effective growth and development.

Can I use ExHale CO2 bags for both vegetative growth and flowering?

Yes, ExHale CO2 bags can be used for both vegetative plant growth as well as fruit and flower production. Providing your plants with the continuous CO2 they need will benefit their growth during all stages of their life cycle.

Where should I place the ExHale CO2 bag in my grow space?

To ensure the most efficient CO2 delivery to your plants, place the ExHale CO2 bag slightly above the level of your plants. The CO2 will flow downwards, ensuring a continuous shower of carbon dioxide is supplied directly to your plants for up to 6 months.
