I've grown outdoors in the past without a problem. this year i built a grow closet (4x4x8). 400 watt HPS, ventilation, excel temperature, only 5 plants. when i received the clones they already smelled like weed. i've gone through 24 hour light for vegetative growth. On 1/12/12 I put them under 12 hours of light. plants look beautiful (lush green and lots of flowers starting).

due to medical reasons I've lost my sense of smell and taste so i didn't realize the plants had no odor till my wife checked on them yesterday.

how can this be? what have i done wrong? i don't care about the weed's taste or smell, but did I lose all potency?????

any insight is appreciated.

thanks,
stonefly

yo...dont worry. I have finished 2 grows inside, even though im no expert. They will smell on and off during the first 2-6 weeks of flower. It does for me, and the potency wuz great. Its very strain depending too...

I grew some white widow that had absolutely no smell whatsoever...I was like what tha fuck??? Then chop day came and I harvested and the moment I cut em it was insane how bad , or good they smelled..good smell anyway after chop the smell got super intense..it just happens, don't worry even if the plant doesn't reak potency won't be affected.

My weed does not smell either, until a friend that hadn't been to my house when I was growing, he could smell it all though he said it wasn't to strong. I think when you live with it you get used to the smell.

I agree, I think you just get used to the smell through growing,handling and processing. I can't count how many times others told me my car or me reeked of weed but I couldn't smell a thing

Jar Cure it for a month or so. Keep it in the dark. Burp the jar properly. All else fails make some oil or hash with some of your stash.
