Power Plant is derived from powerful South African sativa strains. These plants have a fast growing time compared to most sativas and will produce either many medium-sized flowers or a few very large buds with smaller “popcorn” buds between 7 and 9 weeks. These plants are troopers and will do well in almost any grow environment, but its woody, earthy scent is pungent, so indoor growers will have to prepare. Power Plant has a sharp, peppery taste. While many sativas are good choices for a clear-headed buzz, this plant’s high THC content makes it powerful. It makes some users happy and creative, though effects may verge on too intoxicating for some.
Power Plant 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 set ups. Power Plant 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 of Power Plant are visually stunning.
Users feel uplifted, energetic and social, the strain won it’s first award, for second place in the 2006 HighLife Cup. Since then Power Plant 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.
