How much CO²/O² does lettuce consume/produce on average?

Postby keks » Wed Jul 02, 2014 3:49 am


I'm trying to simulate a small closed biosphere, using lettuce (or any other small edible plant).

I'd like to have my numbers as close to reality as possible. I already searched the web for the past few hours, but could not find anything useful. So I'm totally reliant on your help.

I need an rough average on the following amounts using a single full-grown plant as reference in a 24h time span:

  • CO² consumption via photosynthesis
  • O² production via photosynthesis
  • H²O consumption via photosynthesis

  • CO² production via respiration
  • O² consumption via respiration
  • H²O production via respiration

Can you help me?
