Can liquid CO2 be kept in plastic bags? (Need quick responses)

Ok, I'm going on a 2 week vacation, and I have my fish all taken care of but I decided to ore ration the co2 for my plants. But now I realize, will it still be effective when it's been in the plastic bag for up to 12 days? If not, then is there anywhere that I could put it? Thank you.

Your plants won't die if you don't dose CO2 for two weeks, I'd say just skip it.

If you mean something like seachem excel, then your bag will need to be water tight and opaque. the solution reacts with light.

as JDM said, you plants should survive your two week vacation, provided your lights are on a timer...
