Original South African Power Plant
Original South African Power Plant
Power Plant is a classic cannabis variety from the 90s that has won several more cups in Canada in recent years:
Power Plant has large buds with a relatively short internode distance, so they can become quite long stacked ‘colas'. The buds smell floral, woody, spicy and earthy. It is a pungent scent that you as a grower should definitely prepare for, new filters are recommended.
Beyond these few most recognisable aromas, there are also more subtle floral notes of lilies and soft vanilla notes. It is a unique and complex fragrance that is sure to stay with you. Her taste is woody, spicy and pungent, you will absolutely enjoy the intense flavor of these original Sativa genetics.
Power Plant has become a household name in the contemporary cannabis scene. Her exceptional vigor and excellent yield have convinced many growers of her class. This, together with her classic energetic and potent "up-high" ensures that she is a permanent item on the menu in almost every coffee shop in the Netherlands. It is also an easy plant to clone and thanks to these excellent properties Power Plant, together with White Widow and Amnesia Haze, is one of the most cultivated Dutch strains of all time.
Power Plant is, alongside White Widow, one of Dutch Passion's best known varieties. Introduced in 1997, she quickly grew into a variety that every coffee shop wanted on their menu. The genetics of this strain originate from South Africa and are very stable, with enormous growth potential. Our original Power Plant has only been backcrossed, never hybridized and only available from Dutch Passion. An original classic from Dutch Passion, robust, very powerful and with gigantic yields!
Power Plant is a fast flowering Sativa like no other. It is a very easy variety to grow, this is backed up by lots of positive customer feedback. It is therefore an ideal strain for the new grower. Even in the hands of a beginner, Power Plant will be able to produce a large yield. In the hands of an expert, very exceptional yields are possible in a relatively short average flowering time of 9 weeks.
She grows incredibly fast and vigorously during both the growth and flowering phase. This is a plant that is very tolerant of fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Due to her unique genetic background, she can withstand many different climatic conditions, which makes her ideal for a beginner. Crushing, bending and ‘supercropping’ are different growing techniques that are all possible. With this strain it is really a breeze to achieve a fat yield!
During the flowering phase this strain can stretch considerably, 200-300% stretching is the rule rather than the exception. This large stretch makes her the ideal lady for a SCROG grow. This makes shorter veg periods possible. In addition, it is also possible to put her directly on 12/12 after germination. That also makes her a very suitable plant for an extremely fast SOG cultivation. Her internode distance is short to medium which means she can produce very long well-stacked blooms. The generally long blooms, of about 30-50cm, have thin Sativa leaves and a very favourable flower-to-ratio.
The genetics used for Power Plant guarantee the following properties:
Power Plant is the perfect candidate if you are looking for a variety with a bumper harvest which does not require any special attention.
It is a THC rich variety with a complex aroma and a great ‘up-high’. Power Plant is uniform and has a very mild smoke. The Sativa dominant genetics give the user a positive, feel-good high. Her effect is super strong and hits very quickly! The high usually starts with a euphoric and energising effect. It's a strain that can give you the ‘munchies' (an appetite boost), so don't be too surprised if you're going on multiple trips to the fridge.
Eventually the high transforms into a more relaxed feeling with which you can rest on the couch, listen to music or just relax. This is also a great strain for social occasions. Make sure you have enough drinks because it will give you a dry mouth. It's a strong Sativa high with a creative vibe and an anti-anxiety effect that can last for several hours.
Despite the considerable stretch she flowers quite quickly. On average the flowering time is around 8-9 weeks. However, there are also some long flowering phenotypes that take about 10-11 weeks. An unstable environment can also cause her to take just a little longer to ripen completely. As mentioned before, the strain grows very fast, she has a large stretch after switching the clock to 12/12. This makes her a suitable candidate to grow directly from seed in 12/12 lighting conditions.
Plants then grow to an average height of 75-125cm. Her stretch lasts for about 3 to (maximum) 4 weeks and the first flowering hairs can already appear during week 3. This rapid development ensures that Power Plant can also be harvested relatively quickly. So for a classic Sativa dominant strain, she is much faster than most comparable strains available.
It is a fast flowering sativa with a very large yield (500-600 grams/m²) and an intense high. Power Plant is very stable with enormous growth potential. She received her XXL rating for good reasons, even beginners can achieve very good yields with this strain.
In the hands of a connoisseur, Power Plant will be able to deliver extremely high yields of between 600-750g/m². Outside, Power Plant can grow into a true monster and several kilograms per plant are possible. Early flowering phenotypes can also thrive in temperate climates, but dry and warm climates are advised.
There is currently plenty of choice in high quality, THC-rich cannabis seeds. But most of these strains are only medium yielders and some offer downright small yields. Power Plant is a strain developed for home growers and licensed producers looking for the highest possible yield.
With most strains a complete optimisation of the growing conditions is required to achieve a very high yield. With Power Plant, this XXL yield is more the standard. Power Plant is a strain that can handle all types of growing conditions and all types of growing methods. She does well in a SOG (whether or not on 12/12 from seed) and in a SCROG she excels. Her many branches, good elongation and long flowers with only thin slender leaves make her ideal for this growing method.
Keep in mind that only about half of your SCROG net needs to be filled before you put the plants into bloom. She will fill the net in no time! Supercropping, snapping and bending is recommended to control outliers. If you like mega long buds and a big yield, we recommend that you give Power Plant seeds a try!
Power Plant is a cannabis strain with South African roots, created by Dutch Passion. The variety is almost entirely Sativa, with only a tiny bit of Indica genetics for speeding up flowering time, bud compactness and underlying physical effects. If you are new to the cannabis world and just starting to grow, this fast and strong Sativa is a perfect choice. Even those that have been growing for some time will appreciate her rich yield, pungent aroma and delicious high.
