I grew Passion #1 for my first indoor grow.

Had very little trouble, even though I'm sure I made errors. Like over fertilization, over watering, high temps, etc.

I was very happy with the way Passion #1 survived my errors.

Once ready for chop, (42 days), I dried the bud. Once dried, I placed bud in glass jars, opening weekly to check progress.

The taste got better after about 3 weeks.

July,

I was very surprised to see that this variety grew high and long with quite a long space between leaves. It matured very quickly and the buds are long and thin with very little if no smell.
The plant was easy to grow but looks NOTHING like the picture on the Dutch Passion website, as has been the case with other varieties of theirs that I have tired.
To be honest I would not grow this again or any of Dutch Passions stock and found then unhelpful when contacted.
The only good thing about this variety is the stone, it's a knockout but not good if you need a little money, definitely not a cashcrop..
The buds have many hairs and few leaves and I found that against the skink varieties it was poor in yeild.
In the final analysis I would not grow this again and I am very wary fo ANY of Dutch Passions claims for their products.

--10/10 germinated, i started with 8 seeds on a grow, 2 were grown a few months later.
--9 grew into healthy plants, very similar in structure.



This variety is growing tall for an indica, all plants were 1x pruned bud still growing up rather than a bush style. No problems during veg. stage bud after the ligts were 12/12 the plants grew about 50% more high, it was to hot and so the highest tips burned a bit, the leaves were damaged during the last days of flowering because of the temps... this indoor round was in the summer time.

Passion#1 is very fast with a good potency for this short flowering period, the yields and taste are not so great.
Heavy indica stone if the buds all ful ripe. Organic fertilizers recomended.
This strain is growing much better outside.
Overall its an very early flowering strain with a nice stone... but not so fine tasting.

August,

First off, I would say this plant was annoying to deal with. I dont know if I got a bad pack or something but out out 2 packs (20 seeds) only about 10 made it past seedling stage. So it kind of looks like one pouch may have been shitty... oh well.

Throughout the life of my babies there were 2 distinct varieties; healthy and unhealthy. The healthy plants were tall and lanky and the un's were shorter and had very leathery, cracked leaves that I still wonder the cause of. By the end of their lives though most leaves cleared up however.

Also with very flexible stems at the point of harvest, the branches of the healthy plants were bent horizontal with bud weight. However, unlike the DP description, my buds were not long and compact at all, in fact they were very fluffy and airy, and the dry yield was beyond shitty - about 7oz from 4 plants in the ground outside.

So, with all these apparent problems (health, yield, seedling death) why do I like it? The high is great, gets me so HIGH not stoned and I'm yet to find a ceiling to the smoke, the more I toke the higher I get, unlike some weed were you plateau,. That said this isn't "1 hit shit," its good and I enjoy it, but I won't grow it again due to my problems with it.

One upside I failed to mention is I had no issues with mold at all when some other strains gave me trouble the same season. also it finished early (some at end of aug., others beg. of sept.)

I was looking for a high THC outdoor strain that would not have a strong odor when flowering. I came across Passion # 1 and the plant was exactly what I was looking for.
All fifteen of the feminized seeds sprouted and when six inches tall they were transplanted outside into a mixture of potting soil and cow manure. The plants were attacked by bugs and slugs but soon the attacks were under control with neem oil and slug bait.
No hermies or males and they started to flower in July. I picked the plants on September 5th and I could have picked a few plants a week earlier! This plant flowers early, finishes early, and averaged 2oz per plant. Not bad for such a fast finisher! The buds have a lot of crystals and a piney smell. One plant has just a hint of Skunk smell. Smells great when burning and will turn a white rolling paper black.
I gave it to a bunch of people and asked them to rate the high on a scale of 1 to 10. Most people came back with 8's and 9's. They really enjoyed it! I would defiantly grow Passion #1 again because it finishes fast and has a great high.
