anti smell spray advice

Posted by robertgwyther (My Page) on

I am working on an idea of producing an aerosol spray that can be sprayed on plants in order to lock in unpleasant smells does any reader have any advice or ideas on this subject please

I was wondering what product could be used as the base material to basically coat the plant in a protective layer to seal in unpleasant smells but at the same time not be harmful to the plant or inhibit its growth.

Better still if the product actually promoted healthy growth

Come on guys get your thinking caps on i would be really grateful for any input help or advice absolutely anything thank you.

There are sprays that reduce the amount of water lost by transpiration. These are typically used for new transplants to keep them from drying out. What bad smelling bonsai are you growing?


RE: anti smell spray advice

I grow some pretty stinky plants-amorphophallus, dutchmans pipe vines-but have never found the need to spray them.
I too am curious, what are you growing that smells so bad? I just don't stick my nose in the amorph blooms or crunch the foliage on the dutchmans pipe.
Tally HO!

Ya I wondered about that too, still laughing.
