"It smells like a fuking skunk up here!"
    #394447 - 04/02/10 09:54 AM (6 years, 8 months ago)

So...the time has come. My plants are super smelly. I DO live with a legal guardian, but they are cool with me growing it.

However, I have people coming over to my house for easter dinner in a few days, and I need to do SOMETHING to cover up this wonderful stink. It also couldn't hurt to have something for when I have new people to my house.

I don't need anything permanent. I love the skunk smell. I'm just looking for something to cover it up during parties and shit. Maybe an air-freshener of some sort. Not the spray kind, but the plug-in kind - so its always wafting the smell around.

Rather than go to the store and spend $20 on trial-and-error air-freshener buying, what can you guys suggest to me?

Thanks!

The dude at my local hydro store says that shit will work almost as well as a carbon filter. Can't say from personal experience but he has one in the store and they smell pretty nice :shrug:

Cool man :thumbup:

Anyone have experience with it? It sounds good in text anyway :]

It just got warm enough here for me to open the windows too. Maybe that will reduce some of the smell (or, at least keep it in my bedroom).

Thats one thing I am worried about as well considering the fact I live in an apartment complex so I gota do something about the smell.  I am thinking about carbon filters.

If you are worried about the smell, get a carbon filter.

If you're only KIND OF worried, try to cover it up (But you can't :wink:)

Real small. 4 plants.

And yeah, I'm not worried about the traffic. I have parties and whatnot, but nobody goes in my bedroom where the plants are unless they are with me :wink:

And I'm not bringing anyone up here that I have to worry about. The few homies who stop in regularly helped me build my closet haha. Anyone else/anything else that needs to be done can be done in my smoke/chill room down stairs. I only sleep and turn on the stereo up here.

However, I do have people crash in the room next to mine, and I just don't want the hallway smelling real bad. They'd prolly just assume it was from smoking anyway, but ya know. Can't hurt to watch my ass.

I am thinking about getting a 8in by 16 inch carbon filter and running it in my grow tent with a 400CFM fan sucking the air out of the tent through the filter.

I used pretty much every thing trying to avoid having to use a carbon filter.

Once I got a carbon filter I don't understand why I didn't just start with one.

Carbon filter are the only way to go. Way worth the expense since they actually work.

if i were you i would get a larger CFM fan and a speedster fan control. try to connect the fan directly to the carbon filter so you get as much use out of the carbon filter as possible.

I feel your pain brother.

Once it hits the last three weeks of fruiting the smell is so overpowering that it is insane.  I have tried the Ona things.  I have a carbon filter.  I have an expensive ozone generator.  That stuff helped a little.  But, when the lights kicked on and the air around those buds started to get warm the smell would just permeate through the whole house.

I noticed that the air seems to rise when warm.  Hence, if it's in your basement there is nothing you can do about it.  Try and put your setup in an attic.  Then I run my carbon filter, ozone generator, and have little Ona blocks everywhere.  You can still catch little wafts here and there, but it's better now.

Ona stuff is good, I don't know about working as well as a carbon filter does, but it's a pretty heavy scent that masks the cannabis smell easily.  We have a small jar that ona sells where you just remove the lid and let it sit in the air.  I've had it since a little before xmas and it's still smelling pretty strong.  However, the gel buckets can be a little expensive and require the fan to work properly (which is also fairly expensive).  The automatic air mister might be the choice for him IMO, but I've not been able to smell that one personally.  I can vouch for the gel and the little solid jars they sell though.

However, if you're really looking for a super cheap and easy to use alternative, go buy some nag champa and burn that.

It's REAL EASY.

Buy some of this:

I got mine at petco/smart for about $12.

Then go buy some panty hose. Try them on and pick out a nice color; something that complements your complexion. Once you've done that, take them home and fill the toe with activated carbon. Cut it, tie it off, and hang it in front of a fan that is circulating air in your grow room.

I got a little more technical than that and made my own custom fit filter cartridge for a Holmes Air Purifier that I have.

but essentially it's just a screen(or in the example above, panty hose) full of carbon, which is mounted(or in the previous example, hanging) in front of a fan. :shrug:

Actually, to be a little bit more technical, the air is being PULLED through the carbon rather than PUSHED. I'm not sure but it may make all the difference. :thumbup:

:lol:

I think I'll try the Ona thing for now.

IDK how the carbon fan would work, since I don't have a door on my room...just blankets covering the doorway up haha. Its a huge doorway.
