Cigaerettes smoke

What kind of inpact does 2nd hand smoke have on your plants?


I am not sure if any I don’t smoke Cig’s I do smoke weed around them…
@Niala Might have some good info on this.


Thanks for the tag @crazyots :grinning::wink::+1:

Hi @jimmybud , plants can act as a great controlers of air pollution and therefore are absorbing any air polluants. Your overall air quality will improve.

Some studies shows that cigarettes smoke, which is a combination or mixture of gases, organic compounds and particulate matter, causes plants to drop leaves and causes epinasty, which is a downward curvature of leaves, due to its ethylene content. Ethylene causes lateral swelling, reduces the elongation rate and, as opposed to normal vertical growth, causes horizontal growth in seedlings. Smoke often contains air pollutants like sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides that are also injurious to plants. Carbon dioxide in smoke is beneficial to plants, since it is used in photosynthesis, but the particulates present could coat the leaves and hinder the absorption of light.

However, it’s common practice, in ancient China, to ripen harvested fruit, it was a practice to burn incense in the rooms, where the harvested fruits were kept. The created heat and smoke helped in the ripening process.

I stop smoking cigarettes 15 years ago and do have better start with my seedling / sprouting and early veg plant since I have stop smoking. I never test to ripening any kind of fruits or flower plants with smoke, but if I try the experience, I will definitely not use cigarettes smoke for obvious reason, smell for one and the possible absorption of bad chemical in my harvest.

In hope that’s responding to your questionning jimmybud, have a great Sunday :grinning:

One big hazard that comes to mind is infecting the plants with TMV. Tobacco Mosaic Virus is highly contagious and is present in commercial cigarettes FYI. Wash hands around plants.


Thanks to the great strains ive quit cigs. Smoke a lot of cannabis in place of it. Lol


Thanks that helps a lot no more smoking in the room


You’re welcome :grinning::wink::innocent::v:

Congratulations! Ciggs are a hard one to walk away from, in my opionion harder then drugs.


@jimmybud also if u grow outdoors cig. Butts left on the way to and from, and at grow sites contain your DNA and is a very easy way for the “fuzz” to get a conviction. Fyi


i was thinking that @Mitak17 but did not want to assume anything…

Thanx @NTMAREMACH glad someone else is putting the effort in to translate I am sure it is frustrating for them as well :slight_smile: running around adding translations so people can reply also shared the translate link to hopefully make all parties less confused


No smoke damage yet. i hope it stays healthy

Cigarette smoke permeating buds sounds just as nasty as cigarette smoke permeating a human being. Cigarette smoke is nasty, try vapes instead, not so many chemicals, but still has poisonous nicotine in regulated amounts.
