Do plants emit different levels of carbon dioxide at different stages of germination?
Question Date: 2016-11-29
Answer 1:

Plants will emit more carbon dioxide the faster they are growing, so long as they don't yet have light. The moment plants have access to light and enough water, they will start consuming carbon dioxide instead of producing it.
