Growing weed in closet smell

Not only is the smell widely recognized, but it is also often seen as taboo by many. Even when it is being grown in a state that has legalized it, there are still many negative connotations associated with growing cannabis.

Security and Safety

Excess odor can be an indicator of a poor growing environment for plants. From the ventilation to air-circulation and temperature, there are a lot of factors that play a key role in cannabis growth and farming.

Sign Of Poor Health

Different types of grow lights produce varying levels of heat, and along with that, plants in different stages of growth have different ventilation needs.

I keep a large jar of ONA GEL near my front door. If I am ordering pizza, or expecting someone over, I open the jar, place it on top of my tall display cabinet, and leave it. My grow is in a tent, with a carbon scrubber and a vortex on a controller. I have the smell contained, but I’m paranoid about odors. I also have an ozone generator and two ion fountains nearby. Better safe than sorry. If any cop was to be at my front door and stating they smell fresh marijuana, I’m going to call him a liar to his face and tell him to move along, nothing to see here.

+rep Serapis! I just bought some of the Ona Gel and it works GREAT! I put a little in a few dixie cups and placed around my room when I have family over and none are the wiser. I have a 4×2 space and use a 4" Elf carbon filter and 4" inline fan.

If you are going to grow weed inside, you HAVE to have odor control on your list, or sooner or later, you will get popped. It’s amazing all the strangers that start coming to your door when you have a grow going on. All of a sudden, I’m being bombarded by scouts, brownies, politicians, lawn care guys, etc. It seemed that before I grew indoors, I never had a visitor. Go figure.

Good advice. My first indoor grow was a strain that had a promising name, Bubblelicious. It sounded like it would smell sweet, like bubble gum. LOL was I off. When I put my girls into flower, I went into emergency mode, cutting a hole in the closet wall and installing a blow through fan to vent the closet into my bathroom and then outside.

All in all though I have to say a carbon filter would probably do a better job. The good air purifiers arent cheap and you have to make sure that ionizers arent too close to the plants. I use them because I got the large one free and already had the small one. I just upgraded my lights, so I cant spend $ on the grow right now. As soon as I can Im grabbing a carbon filter. You should check out DIY filters, theres plenty of example on here.

Any odor neutralizer or fragrance needs to be constant since your plants don’t stop making their unique flowering scent once they start. Once the smell arrives in your grow room, it basically keeps getting stronger until harvest.

If you use Ona products in your living room, den, or other open areas, no one who enters those rooms will be able to smell any sign of your cannabis plants, even if the plants are just a room away.

How to Find & Install The Right Carbon Filter

We all love the idea of having pure air to breathe. Many air purifiers come with the claim of reducing smells, usually by means of a filter. Do these work to get rid of smells in a marijuana grow room?

Refer to the diagram below to see how a carbon filter should be set up in your exhaust system. The carbon scrubber being placed at the back of the exhaust system minimizes the risk of flowering cannabis smell escaping.
