One of the things we dont talk about enough i believe is smell. Im not talking about the good smells we all love from terps, im referring to the “other” smells. For example:
Ammonia. If i smell ammonia in the tent then i know its too hot and humid for that pheno or strain.
Sulfer: sulfer or rotten egg smells are an indication of decay such as bud rot.
Must: musty smells are an indication of mold or mildew.
I didnt realize how much i relied on this till the other day. The breaker tripped on my ac unit and i smelled ammonia immidiately when i opened the tent. Sure, it was warmer but the smell is the stimuli that really got me.
Does anyone else use smell this way? What other smells are an alarm for you?
