Pure Power Plant from Nirvana

I started 3 Nirvana Pure Power Plant seeds. Got 3 fems out of the seeds, but one was a midget hermie so it got cut. The other 2 plants didn't grow that fast in veg but once I put them into flowering they stretched a little ways. They hadn't shown sex in veg and one of them showed sex after only one ...continued

I received these as freebies from SeedsDirect and they worked out much better than the crappy KC Brains I ordered (those are more trouble than they are worth). PPP seeds were a breeze to germinate. I had a few incredible males that I wish I saved for breeding. They were the fastest growing plants I have ever seen.

The plants themselves react pretty quickly to pH imbalance and I found that they prefer around 5.9.

7 out of 10 plants showed preflowers after about 50 days so I dumped the males and unknowns. I was left with 4 females to choose from. The diversity of phenotypes was minimal. Great for Nirvanas which are supposedly F2's.

Clones rooted pretty easily and the mothers produce lots of clone sites if cropped correctly.

There was about a foot of stretch in the flowering phase, but not unmanageable. The smell during flowering was a little increased but not too bad. I found the yield to be better than I expected. This is a great plant!

The smoke is great, the couchlock only sets in if you lay down. Otherwise. a great up high that lasts. The flavor is spicey and sometimes reminds me of peanut butter! I would grow PPP again with no hesitation. Great value for the price, no false economy here.

Got lucky with one single PPP female, germinating various strains has given me good luck. Soil grow (Ocean Forest soil/perlite) started with 3 PPP seeds, one was female two were male. As with most Nirvana plants that I've grown the PPP was no different, very healthy and uniform growth. These plants had distinct 'fatty' indica leaves, making it easy to tell it apart from other plants in my garden, they also never got dark green compared to the other plants I had in the garden. She went under a 430 watt HPS for about 45 days or so until they showed sex and got to the desired height. 1000w Hortilux was waiting or the single PPP female. Bloom went off without a hitch, the PPP took its sweet time flowering, with a late start at the very beginning. the PPP is a hearty eater, and grew well over 32 inches tall outgrowing most other plants I had in my bloom room. After 70 days plus flowering I took her down, dried her for 4 days naturally, and cured her for another week (berping the jars for fresh air every day).

This strain was a bit rough during the beginning stages. I had 2 females out of 3 seeds planted, and went from there. The method I used included topping, and then paperclip training for about a week to spread out the canopy. The plants were grown under a Sun Systems Garden Light II 150w HPS. The soil was Scotts potting soil and pearlite (60/40), with about a cup of blood meal mixed in. DynaGro nutes were used exclusively. I did not follow a schedule with the nutes but rather fed the plants when they needed it.

The buds were dried for a week hanging upside down, and then transferred to mason jars. The smoke has a nice smooth texture with a nice piney and lemony flavor. When sampled by my neighbors I was told it was the best bud they had ever tasted.

The high doesn't sneak up on you but rather flows into your head after a hit or two. The effect is defiantly sativa like, and I found myself paranoid many times. After a bowl I would feel as if I had downed two Red Bulls (energy drink), and had somewhat of a caffeine rush like feeling, along with the usual paranoia. The high doesn't render one useless, and is a great day smoke in my opinion, with couch lock only setting in when smoking while already tired.

Overall, I would defiantly grow this strain again. The odor was very low, and this strain is great for stealth growing IMHO. I believe a higher yield could have been obtained using the SCROG method, but I yielded about 2.5-3 oz. total off the two plants. If you are looking for a nice sativa that is fairly easy to grow and won't confine you to the couch, check out PPP, I am glad I did.

Started 2 seeds one of which turned into one of the best males I have seen & would have been perfect for breeding

The remaining female was put under 18/6 for 3 weeks & then switched to 12/12 for 6 1/2 weeks (the last week being 11/13).

Plant was the desirable Sativa pheno & should have been flowered for a least anther 10 days but was take early to replenish my personal stash (you know what its like).

Stretch in flower was not too bad & the strain does not tend to grow long side branches & would be perfet for SGROG.

I have just took delivery of more of Nivarna's strains & find them the best value for money on the market today, I know that F2 stock can have more variation but look at the photos & then look at Dutch Passions website pic of the same strain and decide for yourself.

Garden Style for This Report: Screen of Green SCROG


Being my first grow I decided to try Nirvana's Pure Power Plant plus 3 other strains to determine which particular genetics would best suit my very confined loft scrog and my lack of experience. The PPP was perfect in both these respects - I've already ordered some more seeds for my next grow :-).

Unfortunately due to growing constraints and gender, I was restricted to just one plant, I can't therefore offer any comparative examples.

I planted 3 seeds and got 2 females and 1 unknown, eventually I was forced the cull 2 of them due to space limitations. (I only wish I had trashed some of the other strains now)

I vegged at 18/6 under a 600w HPS for 12 weeks, by which time she was 12" tall and looking stout with dark green indica leaves held firmly upwards on short leaf stems. I attempted a FIM at about 9 weeks but got a standard "top" instead. Better luck next time I hope.

I then flowered at 12/12 for 80 days, the extra long flowering was due to me not realising I was over-watering. I've since got a moisture meter :-)

They showed sex a couple weeks into flowering and my remaining plant stretched quickly to twice it's final veg height but it then stopped growing just as quickly. This plant looks beautiful during flowering, the white trichs look excellent against the dark green leaves. Once she had stopped stretching she needed next to no attention.

I watered daily and fed every 3 days with half strength ferts, 25:15:15 for vegging then 15:15:30 for flowring. I stopped the ferts 2 weeks before harvest. Unlike the other strains in my garden, the PPP never showed any signs of distress, she didn't even complain about having water-logged roots for most of her life. The other strains suffered occasional periods of heat-stress during hot 38 degree sunny days, the PPP however looked as happy as ever. A very forgiving plant, ideal for scrogs and beginners.

I eventually harvested 3 ounces from my one plant, the bud looks very appealling with fairly-dense light-green buds that glisten with trichs and require very little manicuring.

With regard to the smoke, it has a crisp pine smoothness, very easy on the throat and quite more-rish. A month's curing has improved upon the smoothness and taste slightly.

This particular pheno glues my arse firmly to the couch with a smile from ear to ear. It's the most potent smoke I've ever enjoyed. For me however, this has to be a weekend smoke, I couldn't hold down a day job after smoking PPP in the evenings.

Reports back from friends confirm my experiences, this bud is wiping-out even the most hardened stoners with a single joint. Unfortunately they all want the bud I have the least of.

On a negative side, I've found PPP really screws-up my taste buds, a few tokes and expensive wine begins to taste like vinegar. Strangely chocolate seems the only flavour unaffected :-)

I will be dedicating 3 quarters of my grow room to this strain for my next grow, the remaining quarter is reserved for Nirvana's NLxShiva thats my weekday smoke. I've chosen 2 strains from the original 4 to regrow, the discarded strains were both from another breeder.

All-in-all a very easy plant to grow that rewarded me with a smooth monged-out but happy couch-lock. Hopefully I will get a sativa dominant pheno next time.

An excellent price for such a high quality plant & smoke.

Sorry for the quality of the photos, I've just bought a better camera for my second grow.

Garden Style for This Report: Tree


Had a lot of trouble with these plants...out of 5 seeds germed, 3 ended up as female. All 3 were of the same phenotype (consequently the males were of thier same specific phenotype as well). They were all very sativa statured; tall with loose, airy buds and "claw" like fan leaves.

All preflowered, around 4-5 days 12/12 under a 400W HPS, after vegging for about 4 weeks under a 400W MH (nothin special, just let them grow out as they would as trees). Grew next to 4 other strains and was amazed at how sativa-like these plants were getting. They took forever to flower....around 70 days but could have definately gone longer.

I know other folks have had completely opposite experiences with this particular strain, so just remember the phenotypes that I recieved were just that.

Out of the threes females I recieved about 40g dry, not too much, and the smoke isn't honestly that great. Very sativa high but the taste just isn;t there. My other simultaneous grows went perfectly, I think this strain is just picky and I didn't tend to it as much as it probably would have liked...I had to focus on a few test grows for other members that took priority.

Used Superthrive with supplemental macro and micro nutrients/vitamins throughout last 2 weeks of veg....used Earth Juice bloom and Catalyst (foliar) dring flower.

It makes me forget things...

Good plant.....not the best in my stock but a keeper nonetheless.

It will be SUPER bushy if you pinch it, or will SOG with ease if left alone, versatile grower.

Long petioles, so they are kinda easy to crowd their elbow room, but didnt really suffer from it. Interesting leafs, the fans seem to contort to one side like pH problems in freshly transplanted clones that cause those weird "twisties", they do it very slightly with no ill effect, but curious.....

It isnt the stinkiest plant in the world, but after harvesting the others and shifting the PPP around, that place stunk like hell....! It did go about 7-10 days longer, but the Mac comes down in like 51 or so...
