The key to Mimosa’s deliciously sweet citrusy orange flavor lies in its terpene profile (discussed in greater detail in Mimosa’s Medical Benefits section below).
There are a number of ways to help Mimosa’s terpenes reach their full potential and thus maximize the plant’s flavors. One is the quality of the soil you choose to grow the Mimosa plant in.
It is highly recommended that you use a complex healthy soil medium rich in essential nutrients. These will help to nourish the plant during its different growth stages. You can purchase a super soil mix in a bag for about twenty to thirty bucks or try your hand at creating your own.
Alternatively, you can provide the Mimosa plant with some of the essential nutrients it needs at different stages of its growth. You can start off by applying above-average levels of nitrogen in the vegetative stage. Follow this by adding high levels of phosphorus and potassium in the flowering stage to help maximize terpene content.
You can further enhance Mimosa’s citrusy orange flavor after harvesting by curing the buds. To do this, start off by drying the buds, either by hanging them upside down or placing them on a drying rack for seven to ten days. The buds need to be completely dry so that they don’t develop mold during the next stage of the curing process.
When the buds are completely dry, place them in an airtight container such as a wide-mouthed mason jar. Seal the lid tightly before storing them in a cool dry place, e.g. a closet.
During the first week of curing, you will need to open the lids at least three times a day for five to ten minutes. Doing this will allow any moisture to escape and let the buds breathe. After the first week, you will only have to do this a few times during the week to prevent any mold from forming.
