While I understand CO2 generators, I don't see how this would help in a greenhouse. CO2 is heavier than air and would sink to the floor. Think about the way dry ice vapor (CO2) flows over the sides of a container. In a terrarium or enclosed space It might make sense. I used a CO2 generator for a planted aquarium that I had. In that case, the gas was dissolved in the water and stayed around longer.
