It is ideal to cultivate Maui Wowie outside, in a tropical, warm, and sunny climate similar to the one it proudly originates from. Even better if you can grow the plant in nutritious volcanic soil. This Sativa strain can reach a height of more than 7 feet, and it should be ready for harvest around early to mid-October, with an average yield of 450 grams per plant.
Maui Wowie takes 8 to 10 weeks to finish flowering. Because it may grow up to 7 feet tall, make sure there’s enough space for the plant or prepare to employ training methods that restrict its vertical growth. The plant can produce 400 grams of fresh-smelling, delicious bud per square meter.
The screen of Green (SCROG) is a training method popularly used to cultivate lanky, leggy cannabis plants. This technique involves weaving branches through the mesh screen as plants mature, redirecting them to grow lengthwise across the trellis netting to achieve a flat horizontal canopy. While the scrogging is more commonly performed indoors, it is also possible to scrog outside.
If organic cannabis gardening is the route you wish to take, you must carefully choose the soil quality that you’ll grow your Maui Wowie in. Fertile soil is made up of organic material and a proper ratio of minerals, which decompose over time. This keeps the roots of your cannabis plants well-nourished throughout their life cycle.
If you prefer to use your old garden soil, you must re-mineralize your beds by adding mineral supplements to improve soil fertility. This is because continuous use depletes the soil’s natural mineral reserves.
Given its origins, one high-quality mineral supplement that is sure to work great on your Maui Wowie is volcanic rock dust. This is because igneous rocks from volcanoes have the highest mineral content. Adding volcanic rock dust to your soil gives plant roots access to immense nutrients. In addition, more nutrients also become available as the rock continues to break down, releasing a steady supply of nutrients.
