Hollands Hope, the classic cup-winning outdoor variety
Hollands Hope won 1st prize at the Copa Del Mar in Argentina in 2013.
Hollands Hope has a fresh pungent aroma of lemon and pine
Hollands Hope has a wonderful ‘old school’ touch, the scent of this classic cannabis strain can best be described as fresh and fruity with heavier notes of pine and wood. The scent of her flowers is quite pungent and as soon as you light a joint, the strong aroma dominates. In terms of taste, it is slightly tart and woody with a spicy undertone. This potent Indica dominant hybrid takes you back in time to the 80s and 90s with its delicious classic cannabis taste and high.
The buds of Hollands Hope are large and compact
Hollands Hope has a good yield. This is mainly due to her large and sturdy flowers, dense blooms of 30-50cm are no exception. In some cases the plant grows up with a classic Christmas tree structure, with the lower branches and flowers just about as thick as the upper ones. This strain does not require any special attention and can also serve perfectly as a ‘guerrilla strain’. You can grow her in a forest or in a (corn) field and even in a mountainous environment. This strain generally does well with low nutritional needs.
Hollands Hope is a strong outdoor variety that is fully adapted to a moderate climate
Hollands Hope is available in both feminised seeds and regular seeds. It is a very potent indica that is fully adapted to the Dutch climate and has been grown outdoors since the 1980s. It is a strong and reliable variety, very resistant to fungi. This makes the plant extremely suitable for a moderate climate and also for the slightly more northerly countries. Whether you want to grow her in the wet Netherlands or the UK, this strain can tolerate quite a bit of bad weather. She grows best as an open-ground variety but is also excellent in pots. Make sure you have a large pot (at least 50L) because that benefits the root system and ultimately the yield of this lady.
Hollands Hope is a strong and robust cannabis plant, easy to grow and very resistant to bad weather conditions
Hollands Hope is a true ‘old school’ classic. This strain was developed in the 1980s when there were hardly any hybridised cannabis varieties for temperate climates. The strain became an instant hit. It amazed many growers with the fast flowering times, allowing it to be harvested before the bad weather started. In the Netherlands, Hollands Hope harvest was long before the maize crops were gathered in, a useful and important feature for guerrilla growers. This gave the strain enormous fame which eventually led to the original Dutch Passion Hollands Hope strain being mentioned in a Dutch TV cannabis series called ‘Hollands Hoop’.
The strain is an Indica dominant hybrid with a fast flowering time of about 8 weeks and a compact bushy (Christmas tree) structure. The plant grows slightly smaller than other outdoor varieties from our ‘Dutch Outdoor’ cannabis seed collection, such as Frisian Dew and Passion # 1. She grows thick, sturdy branches and large fan leaves. In terms of height, she usually reaches around 2m, but in very favourable conditions she can also grow a little taller. If you want to keep her slightly smaller, it is advisable to top her. This can even be done several times, bear in mind that she will then grow strongly in width, so there must be sufficient space for this.
Hollands Hope is a cannabis plant that is perfectly suited for growing in your backyard. Because of its compact growth, it is less visible than other outdoor varieties and you can grow it both in the garden and in pots. In addition, Hollands Hope can also be grown in a greenhouse, but try to provide some ventilation. If it is a greenhouse without ventilation, bud rot (or mold) can be seen in the compact buds of this variety due to too high humidity and too little fresh air (oxygen). Open both a window and the door of the greenhouse for better ventilation. For the best result, use a fan to ensure that more fresh air is blown through the greenhouse and that no stagnant air remains in the greenhouse.
The genetics used to breed Hollands Hope guarantees the following traits:
- An easy to grow Indica-dominant outdoor strain that is very suitable for growing in your backyard, in a forest/field or in a mountainous area
- A plant with a high resistance to bad weather conditions, even in a cold and humid climate, this strain does well
- The compact plant structure makes for a medium-sized outdoor plant, her sturdy buds are long and full of a fresh, fruity and pine-like aroma
Hollands Hope is an ideal strain for outdoor growers and guerrilla growers. In fact, this strain does well with a little less attention and nutrition compared to other strains.
