  Breeder's Description - 'Power Plant'
Power Plant (mostly Sativa) was developed by us in 1997 from new South African genetics. This strain has been inbred only, never hybridized. Very rich in THC. It is a strain with an enormous grow potential. Indoor as well as in a greenhouse the plants have an enormous yield. Indoors flowering starts as early as one week after turning back the light cycle to 12 hours. Outdoor, flowering starts late, but the plants ripen very fast. This variety is very uniform. Strong "up high", very soft smoke.

THC = 13.1%, CBD < 0.1%

A fast growing mainly sativa with African origins. I'm on my fifth grow now with PP all from the same mother stock. I have found them to be very reliable in all stages of growth, but due to the vigour I would advise supplementing any nutes with Magnesium. I really notice the Mag def after the first couple of weeks in flower. A friend who just runs a 400w system has never had Mag problems with plants from the same mothers, so I'm guessing that they start to suffer when you push them with higher wattages.

From a two week vegging period (clone) and then allowing for flowering stretch the PP tops out at between 3.5ft and 5ft. The stretch is very much pheno dependent though, with the shorter pheno being a quicker finisher (six weeks) in my experience.

The stretch of the PP can be filled though to produce some large dense buds, also tying down helps to produce more top stems for bud production. A plant with numerous 12"+ colas is easily possible given the right conditions.

The resin production on PP is good, with all buds having a good thick coating of trichomes. Nice easy plant to harvest, and the shake contains copious amounts of crystal so i'ts a very good strain for hashmaking as well.

Overall I'm more than happy with PP, it took me a couple of grows to get them dialed in, but they're firing on all cylinders for me now.

Power Plant hasn't been the easiest to grow compared to other plants in my garden but the end results have been fantastic.

Veg growth is quite rapid, but nute lockout is easily done. I found it hard to keep the leaves a uniform colour, but even after quite a beating it still flowered fi

I grew Power Plant from seed (Dutch Passion, Standard). Germinated 3 had 1 female with hermy tendences in the first quarter of flowering. Later on I had no more trouble and she came along nicely.

I put the plants in bloom at a height of 7.5 inches.

The one female I had stopped growing at a f

3/3 germinated. 2 were hermies. We took clones when the plants were 30-40 cm. Grew them SOG-style when rooted. They grew from 10 to 40 cm the first two weeks in flowering. (see pic)

I didn't have any problems with nutes at all, gave them both 2-2-4 and 0-13-14 during flowering and they liked it.

This my 1st time with PP, I used feminzed seeds and got 4 keepers that grew very strong an uniformed.
In veg I used BioBizz. Grew till they were about 12-15 inches never had problems during veg. Then I choose the best plants out of them, then put them into Flower.
In flowering I just used BioBizz

Have been growing PP for almost 2.5 years now. Have found her to be quite a uniform short plant. It demands a lot of maintenance work to grow properly & watch out for magnesium lockouts which can have a hell of a difference on your final yields.

Produces rock hard buds you could probably smash

Warning: Keep in mind that my power plant is a selected short and squat pheno on 2 packs!
In a Dutch Passion packs you would get also trees and purple one ...

Mine stays short and squat . And it is very easy to grow !

The taste change a lot from the typical Dutch pool, it was a little difficu
