I have kind of a dumb question about the smell...
    #96117 - 07/29/08 04:11 AM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Unfortunately for me, things have seemed to really dry up in my area as of late and none of my usual hook ups can seem to come through for me. That being the case, I decided to look into growing my own plants, which led me to this fine forum (I normally frequent The Shroomery). After reading several teks and other user's grow logs, I am confident I could make things happen, after all growing weed is simple compared to growing shrooms. :tongue:

My thoughts were to take something like this and turn it into a small and covert grow cabinet. It all was worked out in my head until the reality of the smell of flowering plants hit me. I live in an apartment complex and my apartment does a quarterly maintenance inspection. The guy comes into the apartment and changes the air filters, asks to make sure everything is working, then leaves. This seems like the only time I could get busted for growing.

I was wondering if I had just one plant that I kept pretty small and locked in a bedroom closet, how much smell would it give off? Is it something that the second my front door opens it will be obvious, or with some air fresheners and maybe a carbon filter or ionizer would it be manageable.

Thanks in advance.  :potleaf:

its gonna reak.

ask around for a low smell strain, or maybe a VERY fruity smelling strain.

but you can build a nice box for cheaper than youd get that thing you posted a non workin link for.

you can get a carbon filter or 10 to keep the smell out.

theres this ozone thing too that does somethin :lol:

I changed the link...Sorry.

As for the information, it was what I was fearing. I really don't expect to be able to grow until I get moved into a house, but I figured I would ask.

That is what is great about shrooms. No smell, no powerful lights, no fear of detection. :evil:

Yeah, if I were able to work something out, it would only be for a single plant. I just need enough for personal use. I have no need of stockpiling lbs. of weed or selling it.

I just wanna get high and not have to rely on someone else. Plus, nothing gives more satisfaction than enjoying the fruits of your labor.  :bongload:

indeed indeed.

get one sheet of plywood. and some caulk. and some strip hinges. and a latch. some very thin weather stripping. 3 double socket pigtails. 3 indoor ext. cords. 6 "highest wattage you can find at your local store" CFL's(itll prolly be 40somethin watt)

itll cost you like $50 for this whole set up.

build a 2X2X4h box. caulk all corners and seams.put weather stripping down the one side where the door will be(opposite the hinge) put the hinge on put the door on. put a latch on.

drill 3 holes in the top. about 1 1/2" diameter. spaced so that the double socket dealys with bulbs in each socket can stay suspended there withouth touching eachother.

wire the lights. secure the lights.

get the smallest squirrell cage fan you can find, and buy a carbon filter.(this part of the project is where it gets a tad costly)

the rest is cheap.

but i bet you could find some good stuff on ebay or craigslist and still stay around $200 for the WHOLE thing. prolly less

150 with all the sipping.

2 of these. on at top and one at bottom pulling air into the box(these arent necessary, but would only benefit the plant)


one of these on the opposite side. top or bottom. up to you.


with one of these rigged to it




no smell. healthy circulation. one happy ass plant.

eh, i dunno, unless he's growing a skunk variety one plant isn't going to put off that much of a stink.  It's always good to be a little paranoid, but hiding one plant is relatively easy.  If he knows when his inspection is going to be held, a little carpet deodorizer will help mask the smell of the grow.

mannnnn.

one hot day with one plant. that place is gonna reak.

especially if he has no airflow, or has it in the open.

either way, that little diddy i wrote up for him is a great way to grow a single plant and get great results with no smell, and not give away that theres a plant no?

Ok, since it may be possible, I have another somewhat dumb question...

If I were growing, the plants don't give off the heavy odor until they start flowering right? Any other time it would be like a regular plant and have a smell if you get right up on it, but it won't stink up your whole apartment right?

If that is the case, then I feel pretty confident I could get away with it for a couple of weeks while the plant is flowering. My inspections happen once every three months and they give us 48 hour notice before the day they come...

sweet time it out.

start your plant a month and a 1/2 after the inspection. from seed. then in the next 45 days it will be a seedling into veg growth. then they come by again, and as soon as they do, switch it to flower.

and they still smell in veg, just not as strong.

not strong enough for you to have to worry

yah, in veg they do have an odor, but you really only notice it if you have a bunch of plants in a closet.  Every day i opened up my veg cab i was greeted with a most wonderful smell.
