    Re: Starting Seed Late

    They look ok to me. Tobacco is incredibly small at first and it takes a long time to get any real size to it. It's like starting with a penny and doubling it every day. It takes a few weeks to become rich. I would keep them out of direct sun for another week or two. Dappled sunlight under a shade tree is good. The sun can cook a tiny seedling in no time if it were to dry out too much. Keep them moist, but don't over water. More people kill seedlings by drowning than any other way.

    Re: Starting Seed Late

    They have grown a little more after 10 days but not fast enough. The roots look like they are not getting deeper. Maybe cause of the soil I used. Will use the seed starting mix next spring. It looks like a no harvest for me.Click image for larger version.

    Re: Starting Seed Late

    They will probably flower pretty short (1ft-2ft) I had a couple of late ones last season and they stayed about 2 ft high right through winter. And are only growing taller now..stil no tops? ?

    Re: Starting Seed Late

    Seedlings do start alot slower than you think they should. Keep them going for the experience. It usually takes about eight weeks before they are ready for transplant, with most of the growth occuring later in that period.

    Put them in pots and when the sunlight gets down below 12 hrs a day bring them inside and put a light on them for at least 16 hrs/day.

    Re: Starting Seed Late

    If those are the big gem plants, they start very slow, but once they start their growth spurt hold on to your butt! The seed was harvested from 8' tall plants. In Texas you might have enough season for them to get pretty big. Don't count them out until you see frost on the ground.
