Since both the potting soil and the water you are using contain Miracle - Gro, I can understand why there is an ammonia smell. This fertilizer is ammonia based, and thus explains the odor .

Similarly, it is asked, does Liquid Miracle Grow smell like ammonia?

Is it normal for Miracle Grow All Purpose Plant Food to smell strongly of ammonia ? It is liquid, and it is about two years old, but that is a guessmight be just a year. Once mixed, there is no ammonia smell whatsoever.

Also Know, what is bad about Miracle Grow? Miracle - Gro also contains high levels of salt, which over time strip the soil of its natural nutrients and prevent plants from absorbing them as well, causing a type of "lawn burn." Many consumers believe that more fertilizer will help their gardens even more, so overapplication and consumer misuse exacerbate these.

What does ammonia smell like in chicken?

The Problem. When chickens excrete, the resulting manure is rich in nitrogen, especially the uric acid which is the chicken's equivalent of urine. When manure becomes wet, the nitrogen within decomposes (known as volatilization), and produces a gas called ammonia, which gives off a pungent smell.

Thus, if you spray it on weeds in your lawn, it will not only kill the weeds but the grass that grows around it. Ammonia kills the plant by attacking its roots as well as its top growth.
