If you don’t live in a sunny, humid area, then your best shot would be to grow indoors. The plants are quite resistant to pests, so you won’t need to worry too much about protecting them in that sense. Growing Maui Wowie indoors will require growers to highly recreate the native Hawaiian environment to get the highest yields. Growers are recommended to use a tent with High-Density Discharge lamps to recreate a sunny, tropical environment.
High-quality soils and fertilizers (like Flower Power) are also necessary for replicating the rich, volcanic Hawaiian soil. Growers will also need a fan and exhaust system to remove pungent air and prevent molds. The plants begin to flower after about nine weeks and after that, they are ready for harvest. When cultivated indoors, growers should expect a yield of about 14 ounces of bud per meter squared. Outdoor plants start flowering in mid-October and usually yield about 16 ounces per plant of delicious tropical weed.
