Tips for Growing XJ-13 Cannabis

Ever wanted to grow your favorite strain? Leafly and General Hydroponics are teaming up on a series of grow guides that will equip you with all the tips and tricks you need to grow different strains successfully.


Strain Overview: XJ-13 is a flavorful hybrid strain that was bred by crossing the legendary Jack Herer with G13 Haze. Offering a clean euphoric high, XJ-13 is known for stimulating dialogue and increasing creativity, making it ideal for consumers looking for a more mellow, functional experience. XJ-13 offers a strong citrus aroma with hints of sharp pine that awaken the senses.

Grow Techniques: As a clone-only plant, XJ-13 can be a difficult strain to obtain. If you find the genetics, develop a mother plant so that you can produce it again. Grow in either soil or hydro indoors for maximum THC development. Using a SOG (sea of green) or SCROG (screen of green) method with clones is an ideal way to fill your space and maximize your yield.

Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks

Yield: Moderate

Grow Difficulty: Difficult

Climate: Keep the airflow up and the humidity levels below 40 percent when flowering to prevent powdery mildew. XJ-13 prefers a climate with temperatures between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/Outdoor: XJ-13 thrives both indoors and outdoors.

Feeding: Moderate feedings should keep this strain happy. Combat powdery mildew by foliar spraying with compost tea.
