Seeds from Seeds for Saliva has made Jerry Can strain packaged seeds available online; if clippings are taken from a mature plant, it may also be cultivated as a clone. This is considered a somewhat difficult variety to cultivate because it needs close monitoring of temperature and humidity, so growers may have greater success tending to it indoors. To maximize yields and minimize competition, growers should also “top” their plants, snipping away any broad fan leaves that might block light and airflow from reaching the lower branches. When grown indoors, Jerry Can strain flowers mature within 9 to 10 weeks. It has a somewhat lower than average yield of about 37 grams (or 1.3 ounces) per square foot of plant.
Growers should also pay attention to properly curing the buds in order to maintain the Jerry Can strain’s flavor and potency. The buds are dried by hanging them upside down for a week in a room with 50% humidity and a constant temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, then sealing the dried buds in wide-mouthed jars in ambient conditions of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 60-65% humidity.
Jerry Can strain is a highly potent strain with a racing head high and an aroma that is reminiscent of pine car freshener. This isn’t a nighttime smoke unless you plan on having a long, energetic night followed by an inevitable crash.
