Has anyone considered that your car exhaust is CO2 and the smoke from a outside burn pile is also full of CO2 and that Venus Fly Traps might benefit from sitting near your car exhaust and also sitting near a pile of burning wood?

YouTube has Videos for CO2 DIY generators.
Amazon has one too, also articles on Google.
