Descending from South African genetics, Power Plant is a mostly Sativa landrace hybrid. That has been inbred to create a stable strain with a THC range between 15 and 20 percent.
Dutch Passion began developing the genetics for this strain in the early nineties and then released it in 1997. Causing users to feel uplifted, energetic, and social. The strain won its first award, for second place in the 2006 HighLife Cup.
Since then has won several more awards, which include two first-place prizes in the HighLife Cups of 2008 and 2009. While it carries the normal downsides, Power Plant can be a very smooth smoke when properly dried. Tasting of sandalwood and spice, a handful of users may find this strain very trippy.
It is useful to patients seeking relief from depression, migraines, fatigue, and more, providing relief after flowering for about seven to nine weeks. An extremely uniform plant, this strain is great for creating clones. Though Dutch Passion recommends that growers keep this strain indoors or in a greenhouse, there have been some reports of success from outdoor grow setups.
It is ready for harvest outdoors in October in subtropic and warm temperate climates or March for more arid desert climates. Reportedly yielding up to 500 grams per square meter, the buds are visually stunning.
