Blue Hawaiian can be grown indoor or outdoor. Seeds are available, but growers can also obtain some clippings from a healthy plant to grow as a clone. Indoor cultivation needs close monitoring to maintain ideal temperatures, and the plants may need to be trimmed and pruned early in the growing process.
Outdoor cultivation, on the other hand, requires a Mediterranean climate with daytime temperatures within a 70° Fahrenheit range. Growers may need to artificially shock the plants by exposing them to cold temperatures before the flowering stage. This will stimulate the pigments of the plant to produce vibrant hues of purple and blue.
The breeder has explicitly stated that Blue Hawaiian has quite a lengthy flowering time. To be exact, it may last for about 9 to 10 weeks. Regardless, the strain is very rewarding. With enough persistence, it may be able to produce an effective yield of 16 to 20 ounces per square meter.
