In this weeks grow review GG65 grew BCN Power Plant under a 600W HPS growlight, the autoflower seeds were grown in a 50/50 soil/perlite mixture.
The original grow diary is here on the Autoflower Network.
The grow room has two 4 inch (100cm) air intakes. There was an oscillating fan inside the grow room to circulate the air, and a 6-inch (150mm) air extraction unit with a carbon filter which takes air via the HPS cool tube.
The BCN Power Plant Autoflower seeds were grown under a 19/5 light system, that means 19 hours of daily light followed by 5 hours of darkness. Indoor cannabis growers often use a 20/4 light schedule for autoflowering seeds.
Some growers even use a 24/0 light schedule, but Seedstockers feminized auto seeds are flexible and tough, they will grow well under any light schedule they are given indoors or outdoors.
BCN Power Plant Autoflower uses well proven genetics that are easy to grow.
The genetics originally came from South Africa where they had a reputation for fast growing and heavy yielding plants with a strong sativa high.
Many growers find this variety useful for creative or artistic hobbies, it’s a relaxing high with a long lasting and intense psychoactive effect.
The BCN Power Plant autoflower seeds spend the first 3 weeks or so growing vegatively. Normally they show female pre flowers around day 25.
During the first 3 weeks the seeds grow into short and leafy seedlings, even under 24 hour light growth can seem relatively slow.
From days 25-50 the BCN Power Plant Autoflower will start stretching, sometimes by 2-3cm per day. Normally you will see a dominant central bloom which grows slightly taller than the rest. The side blooms tend to be slightly shorter than the main central bloom but they will still produce plenty of buds.
As the auto ages the side blooms get gradually larger, and the overall plant appearance is improved by a generous layer of resin.
The buds are sticky to the touch and from days 50-75 you can expect to see the blooms swell on this variety.
She grows well in a SCROG environment, or in a natural growth setting.
BCN Power Plant Autoflower also grows well in soil, coco fibre or in a hydroponics system, these are tough and flexible Power Plant genetics which have been used for many years by cannabis growers.
This grow review shows how a typical 600W HPS with soil delivers a heavy harvest from a compact plant which is usually around a metre tall at the end of bloom.
You can expect 10-15 blooms, the more light you can provide the more blooms and the heavier the final harvest.
This variety is usually ready to harvest around 75 days after germinating the auto seeds.
Occasionally you will find a heavy yielding phenotype which needs a week or two longer but these plants are well worth waiting for.
Under ideal conditions, with powerful indoor lights and a hydroponic system you can expect several hundred grams from each plant.
BCN Power Plant is available as both feminized seeds and autoflower seeds.
The genetics have stood the test of time and have been around since the 1990’s.
The Seedstockers versions of Power Plant are the best ones we could find, and when you buy in bulk the prices are around a euro per feminized seed.
You can also get great results by growing BCN Power Plant Autoflower seeds outdoors, ideally germinate and grow the seeds indoors for a week or two before you plant outside. Find warm, sunny grow locations with good quality soil for the best outdoor results.
