Help and comments



This is my first plant I have grown I don’t know much about growing I just thought about it. I have concerns on why the soil smells strong, like a hair dye or ammonia. I would really appreciate feedback and some help. A smaller nug is getting brownish around it.

Welcome I don’t know why your soil would smell like hair dye. Just a couple things might help on your next go-round I was noticing in the picture looks like you have it planted in a clear plastic container which is a No-No for sun exposure to roots. Lot of good organic Soil available now. Good luck and happy growing

I’m guessing it’s pockets of bacterial in the soil from the organics breaking down. The clear container allowing light in doesn’t help the process either. Soil should smell earthy.

Wrap something around the container that it’s in like card board or maybe duct tape to keep the light out . Keep an eye on those nugs . That brownish nug could be bud rot .

Would it be best to just cut it?

If you could get a close up picture of the brown bud that would help . If it is bud rot it will spread to others . Does it look something like this ? signs-bud-rot-marijuana

i already cut it :frowning: it wasn’t a big loss though.
