Fig Trees = Cat pee smell!!!!
Now that the weather is starting to turn here on Long Island, I figured it is time to carry them inside. I have a Florida room that is currently housing them.
Well I know from them being outside, and moving here from Bensonhurst Brooklyn (every other person has a fig tree there) that they give off a cat pee smell.
I NEVER noticed this smell on my figs outside.
Now that they are inside the smell is horrible! I walk into my florida room and just about pass out and turn green, I don't know to breathe from my mouth or nose because I don't want to smell it, but I don't want to taste it either!!!!
Now our Florida room is a place of gathering, we have people over almost every week and this is where we entertain and I can't have people inside a room that smells like a horders litter box that has not been changed for 2 months.
I need to know 2 things, either is there a way to get rid of this stink from the plant, and I can keep it indoors? or what is the best way to plant it in the ground now, and winterize it. The cuties are about 3+ feet tall, with lots of branches and fruit.
I'm ready to about vomit and burn them, but my husband is mad because I have wanted a fig tree for about 8yrs, and he wants to keep them.
Any help would be appreciated!

My marigold plants are growing. I heard that pinching the buds until Autumn will allow them to grow without killing the plant. Is this true?
