The Sativa dominant Power Plant weed strain was developed from South African plants in the mid-1990s in the Netherlands. You’ll understand the ‘power’ part of the name when you sample this potent marijuana.
Power Plant cannabis gives a rapid, euphoric high that will leave you ready for partying or for physical and mental activity. The weed has a smooth, skunky flavour and smell with earthy notes. For a quick pick-me-up, this weed is ideal.
The plants grow to a medium height indoors, but let them have their head outdoors and they can grow quite tall. The leaves are long and thin and mid-green in colour, while the buds are light green with a covering of orange hairs. THC content comes in at 15 percent.
Power Plant seeds grow well indoors with the SOG method and careful pruning will produce more buds. Left to its own devices, the plant will give fewer but larger buds, as long as 20 centimetres. Flowering time is from eight to nine weeks and yields are up to 500 grams per square metre.
Outdoor growth is not recommended for cooler northern climates. Power Plant does well in a Mediterranean summer, producing as much as 600 grams per plant, and even more in optimum conditions.
Power Plant weed has all the best characteristics of Sativa – a euphoric high that will leave you grinning and alert. It produces good yields and it’s not too hard to grow.
