Growing Power Plant Seeds
Power Plant cannabis seeds exist as an unhybridized purebred strain. Feminized Power Plant Seeds provide growers with uniform, stable, and high yielding plants. Power Plant is easy to clone and provides many potential sites to take clippings from. Plants can grow to between 3 and 5 feet tall, with buds reaching a foot long. Just like classic sativas, Power Plant tends to get stretchy, making it better suited for outdoor or amply sized grow rooms.
If growing indoors, a SCROG setup paired with careful pruning will improve the quality and quantity of the buds. Although this particular cannabis strain adapts well to harsh environments, a warm and sunny Mediterranean climate is always preferred. Power Plant has a favorable bud-to-leaf ratio and ability to produce a tremendous harvest, making this strain largely popular with commercial growers. Indoor flowering takes 8-10 weeks and yields 17-21oz/m2. Growing Power Plant outside will result in a mid-October harvest of 21-35oz/plant.
