I want to grow in containers and I'm curious if tobacco will behave like tomatoes using the same principle that follows:

(for tomatoes) "Remember to tear off the bottom of the roots and the lower leaves and plant DEEP - with only the upper leaves poking up through the soil. New roots will form along the stem & you'll wind up with a MUCH stronger root system, faster."

I think I've read this advice somewhere when applied to tobacco plants, i.e. burying the transplant with the bottom two leaves underground to develop a more robust root structure.

1. Is this practice advisable?

2. Do new roots develop along the stalk of what was previously above ground stalk when buried below the new soil horizon?
