Symptoms of too much CO2 in greenhouse

albert_135(Sunset 2 or 3)August 25, 2005

In an article on compost heated greenhouses they mention problems with too much CO2 in the greenhouse atmosphere but they don't discuss the symptoms.

What are the symptoms of to much CO2 in the greenhouse atmosphere?

Here is a link that might be useful: composting greenhouse

albert,
Google ...."effect of carbon dioxide on plants" (without quotes). Lots of interesting reading and information.

Found it: "...too much [over 1200ppm] CO2 will ... stunt plants but this is usually accompanied by chlorosis or necrosis of the foliage."

(Although it was a bugger to sort out the environmentalist postings about excess greenhouse gases from an excess of greenhouse gasses within the greenhouse.)
