Sativa strains earned the reputation of being challenging to grow, but Moby Dick is quite the exception. It’s ultra-demanding when it comes to light and nutrients but only requires minimal, nothing-out-of-the-ordinary plant care. She rarely troubles cultivators as she’s not only on the hardy side but also highly resistant to moisture-related concerns. Perhaps the biggest concerns with this voracious cannabis are her appetite and ability to stretch up 3.5 meters high.
Like the sperm whale she was named after, Moby Dick needs plenty of space and water. To get a mental picture of how big she can get, a considerably large area that can accommodate four White Widows can only fit two of this giant. The strain can triple in height during the flowering period, so plan ahead for the right timing to switch to the 12/12 cycle. We recommend transitioning after three weeks of vegetative growth. This should give her enough time to develop strong enough branches to carry her heavy buds even without support.
The more light the flowers receive in the fruiting period, the bigger they get. Moby Dick’s main cola will undoubtedly be her crown jewel unless apical dominance is eliminated. If grown in a warm setting and given what she needs (loads of lights and feeding), growers can achieve 650 grams per square meter after flowering for 8 to 10 weeks indoors or a mind-blowing 1500 grams per sun-grown plant, which can be harvested by mid to late October.
