2294.5 Noel 2019 Greenhouse Plant

It may be a little hard to tell the difference between this greenhouse plant and the outdoor one based on these images alone, but in short, this plant despite being the same age is much larger. While not exactly quantified it is an estimated 30% bigger and further along with none of the typical nitrogen bloat or excessive fertilizer issues to get it larger. The reason for the increase in size is simply due to the added warmth and carbon dioxide enrichment. Seeing it year after year it is still amazing the difference that elevated levels of carbon dioxide can make on plants.
