  1. Cartoon logic at work. In RL, you would likely need 100 plants.

    Big ones.
    Just looked it up. 10,000 leaves, or 8 square meters of algae for a person. Assuming a 150 lb person (in my dreams), 2 flowers would still be hopeless.

    • The flowers are substituting for what the DODOS were producing when the dodo’s were plants. It’s offsetting the oxygen the dodos are consuming, not supporting the crew on their own. It’s just that by offsetting the dodo’s consumption of oxygen, they’re ensuring that they don’t use up whatever safety margin they have with their oxygen supply.
