I've never grown weed before but I decided to plant a seed that I got out of a sack of weed. Well yesterday I noticed it has cracked open and you can see a tiny plant starting to grow. My question concerns the smell of growing marijuana. I would just be doing this one plant just to see how hard it is since I've got some lights that i'm growing some other plants under. Could I get away with doing this in an apartment in the city, I'm worried about how loud it will smell as there are lots of people that live in this building very close to me and if the smell made it out of my apartment through the door then it might make the whole floor I'm on reek like weed and that would not be good at all. Plus another thing I'm worried about is my apartment is one of the two that are on the end of the hallway closest to the elevator, so people would be walking right past my door all day and they'd sometimes have to wait for a while for the elevator to come which would give them time to notice the smell and really think about it. I'm sure my nose would probably get used to the smell to an extent also and I wouldn't think it was really that noticeable and I would be okay when in reality any other person would be like "Damn, that smells like some loud". And I'm sure once you have plants growing it gets to a certain point where you can't really turn back. I've done some things with chemicals that smelled pretty strong where I taped around the front door and opened the window, but I did that at night when most people would not be awake to smell it. How much would a single plant smell when flowering? Could I get away with it, I don't have the ends to go out and purchase all the things to set up a sealed room with air filtration and whatnot to filter out the smell, I just want to see if I can grow this one plant and if I like it and it's successful then I might invest more heavily.
