I had a good carbon filter but it wasn’t enough. Busted by building management, who is threatening to call the cops if the smell doesn’t go away pronto. I was forced to chop em all down.
Fortunately the crop was in 8th week flower already, so the 1 or 2 indicas in the crop were already being flushed for harvest next week. But most of the crop are sativas that still had another 4+ weeks of flower to go, and I was forced to harvest way early, before most of the crop even started developing sugar leaves.
I moved the grow tent inside an airtight room with no ventillation ducts to the rest of the building, and hung all 17 plants inverted in the tent. It’s a crowded fit. I’m a little worried about mold in such close quarters so I set up a UV-C Ozone generating light in the bottom of the tent.
Obviously there’s nothing that can be done about the fact that most of the crop was harvested 4 weeks earlier than optimal, and potency is certain to suffer as a result. But is there anything at all that can/should be done to mitigate the situation or make the best of it?
I was running the Biobizz line of nutrients at full potency on most of the crop. A couple of indicas were already in flush but the rest of the crop was fed full nutes right up to the last day. I know that harvesting without a flush is a no-no, but nothing could be done at the time. Is there anything I can do after the fact to mitigate the presence of nutes in the plants at the time of harvest? And how big of a deal is this to start with? Are we just talking unpleasant flavor/odor or are we talking serious health risk?
