    Helloooo

    I am 3 week from a harvest my 1 100% indica plant under the 200 w COB
    And i come home after 12 h of dark for plant and whole apartmant have a that smell...
    In 2 day the plant exploed with smell.
    I open window that help but...

    I am thinking , I dont have a carbon filter, so if I just buy some carbon in pet shop and put it in women sock and then put that in exit of my alu pipe that is connect with 125 mm quietline from vents...
    so no carbon filter only carbon put in women sock and I put that at exit of my alu pipe...

    The air should pass thru the carbon only. Your idea might work. But its still best to buy a real filter if You can afford one.
    The smell is no joke and almost anyone can recognize it.

    Ona gel is a better option if you don't have a proper filter.

    It wont be perfect but it will help. You will still have to find a real filter , or build something similar.
    All those filters are using activated carbon too. Stop thinking and start acting if You cant buy one today.
    What kind of an exhaust fan do You have ? Depending on its power, You'll need to adjust the amount of carbon.
    I think its possible. At least it will give You some time.

    Good luck !

    To "activate" the carbon, it needs to be dehydrated in an oven. It also has to be crushed up, increasing surface area allowing it to "soak up" smells.

    If you have a large enough fan, like a 8 inch inline fan, you can go to Walmart and buy a furnace filter with activated carbon. Works alright. Can also buy several large boxes of baking soda and spread it out in cups and trays. But you really need a real carbon filter.

    If that is in reply to my post, no it wont work it's the wrong style fan. All that will is your fan motor will burn out unfortunately. Inline fans produce much better pushing power.

    I would figure out something fast, that's how a lot of people get caught, the smell. No I wouldn't even bother with the fan you have.

    You need to get on Amazon and order the appropriate sized carbon filter and fan for your grow area.

    Do you have this plant in like a tent or box or what? And how many feet is that area in, width depth and height?
