Thanks in advance for any suggestions and advice received!
Unless you have a need to lower the GH/pH and intend the CO2 to assist in this, I would not use CO2 in a planted tank with discus. And if you do use CO2 then use a commercial type that is more reliable.
But one can have very beautiful and thriving planted tanks without adding CO2. As the photos of many of our members' tanks illustrate; mine are under "Aquariums" below my name on the left.
