PTFE vents allow elevated in-flask humidity to be maintained, ensuring greater levels of stomata opening and higher volume gas exchange resulting in better and quicker plant growth. This is only possible with a hydrophobic venting system. This is the main reason why plants grow better with such a venting system. It mirrors the effect of increasing humidity in a glasshouse... where stress free plants grow fastest. PTFE venting retains higher water vapour pressures and atmospheric moisture in-vitro than conventional venting. High levels of air exchange and phototranspiration is possible without the detrimental dehydration associated with conventional venting. Put simply - your plants will grow quicker with the right venting system. Modern Venting Systems and PTFE FAQ NOW PRINTABLE see link on left.
