So would an airstone increase plant growth and keep them green ?

Well it'd help if there was no injected co2, but yeah, an airstone is better than not having anything. But it doesn't change that most of your plants are slow growers, so I dont think you'd see an improvemet

Why do you say it would better without a co2 injector. Sorry I ask so many questions I'm new to the whole co2 buisness

Oh, I'm sorry if you understood wrong, but injected co2 is definitely better than an airstone, I'm just saying that there's really no need for the co2, as your plants wouldn't change in growth much because they're still all slow growing plants

Aug ok I understand now. So in a nutshell your saying that co2 is good but it wouldn't benefit my type of plans as they are slow growing ? Many thanks

Yep, the outcome wouldn't be worth the effort of refilling the diy co2 every week.
