Pure Power Plant is a Sativa dominant weed created in the 1990s by crossing two Sativa strains, Durban Poison and The Pure, with an Indica that’s never been identified. The Pure is a potent strain from the USA and Durban Poison is a heritage South African weed whose origins long pre-date the development of modern hybridized skunk strains.
The stain’s aroma combines note of pine and musty earth while the flavor will remind you of vanilla and exotic spices. The high is energizing rather than sedating making this is a good daytime smoke as well as a smart choice if you’re planning to do some socializing. Medical practitioners recommend this weed for stress and poor appetite.
Pure Power Plant seeds produce plants that grow to between 100 and 140 centimetres tall with long-fingered, jungle-green leaves. The buds are light green and rather fluffy with a generous covering of orange to red hairs. THC content ranges from eight to 15 percent.
Indoors, this strain grows best in hydro rather and needs to be trained to keep it in shape since it has a tendency to straggle. Flowering time is from eight to nine weeks and yields are around 400 to 500 grams per square metre.
A Pure Power Plant review should point out that this plant requires lots of warm sunshine for successful outdoor cultivation, so it’s best to plant it somewhere that has a climate akin to the Mediterranean. Harvest in the northern hemisphere comes in late September or early October.
Pure Power Plant has become increasingly popular with commercial growers but it has plenty to recommend it to the domestic gardener as well. It isn’t difficult to grow, it produces good harvests, and it offers a Sativa high that’s stimulating and sociable.
