I started 3 Nirvana Pure Power Plant seeds. Got 3 fems out of the seeds, but one was a midget hermie so it got cut. The other 2 plants didn't grow that fast in veg but once I put them into flowering they stretched a little ways. They hadn't shown sex in veg and one of them showed sex after only one ...continued

I received these as freebies from SeedsDirect and they worked out much better than the crappy KC Brains I ordered (those are more trouble than they are worth). PPP seeds were a breeze to germinate. I had a few incredible males that I wish I saved for breeding. They were the fastest growing plants I ...continued

Got lucky with one single PPP female, germinating various strains has given me good luck. Soil grow (Ocean Forest soil/perlite) started with 3 PPP seeds, one was female two were male. As with most Nirvana plants that I've grown the PPP was no different, very healthy and uniform growth. These plants ...continued

This strain was a bit rough during the beginning stages. I had 2 females out of 3 seeds planted, and went from there. The method I used included topping, and then paperclip training for about a week to spread out the canopy. The plants were grown under a Sun Systems Garden Light II 150w HPS. The soi ...continued

Started 2 seeds one of which turned into one of the best males I have seen & would have been perfect for breeding

The remaining female was put under 18/6 for 3 weeks & then switched to 12/12 for 6 1/2 weeks (the last week being 11/13).

Being my first grow I decided to try Nirvana's Pure Power Plant plus 3 other strains to determine which particular genetics would best suit my very confined loft scrog and my lack of experience. The PPP was perfect in both these respects - I've already ordered some more seeds for my next grow :-).

Unfortunately due to growing constraints and gender, I was restricted to just one plant, I can't therefore offer any comparative examples.

I planted 3 seeds and got 2 females and 1 unknown, eventually I was forced the cull 2 of them due to space limitations. (I only wish I had trashed some of the other strains now)

I vegged at 18/6 under a 600w HPS for 12 weeks, by which time she was 12" tall and looking stout with dark green indica leaves held firmly upwards on short leaf stems. I attempted a FIM at about 9 weeks but got a standard "top" instead. Better luck next time I hope.

I then flowered at 12/12 for 80 days, the extra long flowering was due to me not realising I was over-watering. I've since got a moisture meter :-)

They showed sex a couple weeks into flowering and my remaining plant stretched quickly to twice it's final veg height but it then stopped growing just as quickly. This plant looks beautiful during flowering, the white trichs look excellent against the dark green leaves. Once she had stopped stretching she needed next to no attention.

I watered daily and fed every 3 days with half strength ferts, 25:15:15 for vegging then 15:15:30 for flowring. I stopped the ferts 2 weeks before harvest. Unlike the other strains in my garden, the PPP never showed any signs of distress, she didn't even complain about having water-logged roots for most of her life. The other strains suffered occasional periods of heat-stress during hot 38 degree sunny days, the PPP however looked as happy as ever. A very forgiving plant, ideal for scrogs and beginners.

I eventually harvested 3 ounces from my one plant, the bud looks very appealling with fairly-dense light-green buds that glisten with trichs and require very little manicuring.

With regard to the smoke, it has a crisp pine smoothness, very easy on the throat and quite more-rish. A month's curing has improved upon the smoothness and taste slightly.

This particular pheno glues my arse firmly to the couch with a smile from ear to ear. It's the most potent smoke I've ever enjoyed. For me however, this has to be a weekend smoke, I couldn't hold down a day job after smoking PPP in the evenings.

Reports back from friends confirm my experiences, this bud is wiping-out even the most hardened stoners with a single joint. Unfortunately they all want the bud I have the least of.

On a negative side, I've found PPP really screws-up my taste buds, a few tokes and expensive wine begins to taste like vinegar. Strangely chocolate seems the only flavour unaffected :-)

I will be dedicating 3 quarters of my grow room to this strain for my next grow, the remaining quarter is reserved for Nirvana's NLxShiva thats my weekday smoke. I've chosen 2 strains from the original 4 to regrow, the discarded strains were both from another breeder.

All-in-all a very easy plant to grow that rewarded me with a smooth monged-out but happy couch-lock. Hopefully I will get a sativa dominant pheno next time.

An excellent price for such a high quality plant & smoke.

Sorry for the quality of the photos, I've just bought a better camera for my second grow.

Had a lot of trouble with these plants...out of 5 seeds germed, 3 ended up as female. All 3 were of the same phenotype (consequently the males were of thier same specific phenotype as well). They were all very sativa statured; tall with loose, airy buds and "claw" like fan leaves.

I started off with 4 seeds, all germed in 48 hours, as usual with Nirvana, very fast 100% germ rate, took 36 hours to break through the top of the rockwool once planted.

I kept them under fluros for 5 weeks, and lost one due to neglect (did not water) as I was going to put them in an aeroponics s

It makes me forget things...

Good plant.....not the best in my stock but a keeper nonetheless.

It will be SUPER bushy if you pinch it, or will SOG with ease if left alone, versatile grower.

Long petioles, so they are kinda easy to crowd their elbow room, but didnt really suffer from it. In

This strain does pretty well in the desert where I'm growing. I had 9 plants at the start ; I kept four of them once I determined sex.
The seedlings where honestly not very uniform, all where sativa but even in early veg you could tell the diffrence in phenomes, and once the plants started flowerin
