Power Plant's origin is as a South African sativa which has had a little tinkering genetically-speaking along the way. It was released in Holland in 1997 and Dutch Passion has the original version. It is a stable variety that produces large yields whether grown indoors, in a greenhouse or simply outdoors planted in the ground. Very popular in Dutch coffee-shops to this day.
When cultivated outdoors it does better in warmer climates than in the very cool northern European summers. Plants reach a height of between 100 - 150 cm. tall and is suitable for LST to improve yields. Indoors this strain is ready for harvest after just 8 weeks of flowering and then grower's reward will be 500 - 600 gr/m2 of fine compact yet elongated buds.
Power Plant has high THC and a very fresh, smooth smoke which imparts a sweet after-taste on the exhale. The effect is potent and somewhat uplifting and is also long-lasting. Not for nothing is this strain called Power Plant.

About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
