Stanky Dank & Carbon Filters
    #594718 - 10/30/11 08:15 AM (5 years, 1 month ago)

Hi guys,

This morning I put my nose to one of my 3 wk old plants and was able to smell it.
I've got a centrifugal fan that exhausts out of the window, which is right by the fence.

I went out and put my nose to the exhaust, and couldn't smell anything. The earliest I will be able to buy a carbon filter is Friday. What are the odds that my plants will be putting out enough smell to make my neighbours suspicious?
Do all seedlings have an aroma, when you put your nose to it? Or are they about to get to the stage where they stink?

Now that I've noticed it, and I still haven't bought myself a carbon scrubber, I'm getting a little worried, paranoid.

Your input will hopefully put my mind at ease, or make me figure out a way to get my carbon scrubber earlier.

Cheers
MagickZ

Dude, get a carbon filter ASAP. It's not worth getting busted cos you didn't fork out a few hundred for a carbon filter. Have you got a vent in the roof or anything? If so then you could direct the fan into the roof which will help.

I want to see what people say. I've noticed the same thing with a few of mine. First few times I smelled it I was like "No way, not already!?!" and chalked it up to the fish fertilizer.

After reading this though...  :feelsparanoidman:

I've been working with power tools since I was 8, my dad is an electrical engineer who owned a 280 gal fish tank, and I studied biology with a specialty in genetics. Getting dirty comes naturally. I think my parents inadvertently trained me to be a weed grower.

See what you think on my first try.

Well I also thought it may be because I gave it its first feeding of fish emulsion. So is it the Fish Emulsion I'm smelling, or the plant?

Because I remember sniffing the bottle thinking to myself, it doesn't smell that bad, but 18 hours under those lights I reckon can make the stink stronger lol

I'll add a pole to the thread
What am I smelling?
You may choose only one
The Plant
The Fish Emulsion Nutes

I'll be honest I think its both. I smell a couple of mine and I can detect the fish fertilizer. Than I smell others and its much more reminiscent of weed.... Now that's not to say its not just the fish emulsion coming through the leaves (after being "digested" by the plant)... But I can usually trust my nose, so long as it isn't spring.

Plants even in the vegetative phase can definitely have an odor.  Its not usually enough to worry about. 

They don't get really stinky until your a few weeks into the flowering phase.

I had 2 Bagseed in veg.  After about 3 weeks they smelled up the whole house after about 1 hour without the carbon filter on.  our house is about 1000 sq ft.  I don't know what strain these are of course.  I have read the smell is really strain dependent.  Indica is far more smelly than sativa during veg.

Hmm, this is unusual because there are a couple plants I have which are definately sativa dominate. Or at least based off growth paterns and leave proportion I'd say they were sativa, but those are some of the stinkiest ones in the lot.

It's just a generalisation, but of course there are exceptions to every rule. There are many sativa's that are stinky, and many indicas that have little or no smell. You probably have one of those strains that are the exception to the rule.

Many thanks guys.
I just went to water my plants, and the smell has gotten stronger lol.
Thankfully, I plan to buy my carbon filter very soon.

I just got my first payslip and I'm getting paid double what i expected lol. This place pays really well :laugh:

After midnight when the funds hit my account I'm gonna order many things lol. One of them that I cant wait for are the electric ciggarettes. They are still illegal in Australia as they haven't been approved yet, but I desperately need one as I need to give up the ciggs

I hope you aren't ordering your grow stuff online with your Paypal account or credit/debit card. If you must buy it online then use a prepaid credit card. You can buy them from Woolworths and other shops. Remember that even if you use a prepaid credit card and you're using Ebay then it will still show on your Ebay account. The Australian Tax Office also checks people's Ebay accounts if they sell a lot of stuff so you are not precluded from being checked by government agencies.

I just use a guy to order my stuff. All I have to do is hand him a list and money (a lot of times he'll cover the cost too) and he does the rest.

While I always imagined my first grow to only have 1 other (2 if I were dating LOL) person besides myself who knew about it; but at least now I won't have to worry about getting rid of extra weight, and I have another wallat throwing money into the pot which means I don't have to go without pot!

I stuck my head into my garden today. I think I'm going to build a carbon filter during flowering :lol:  :awesomenod:
