    Re: Are these ready for the garden?

    When I transplant they're always pretty root bound. I consider the first couple weeks root growing time. My first bed is planted already and then we had nonstop dry, windy sunny weather. They didn't wilt once and weren't watered. That's the roots doing their thing.

    Just let them be unless you see them wilted in the evening

    Re: Are these ready for the garden?

    Thanks, guys! I'm really excited to see what happens over the next few weeks. The forecast is finally looking up - only 1 day of rain projected over the next two weeks! Otherwise, partly sunny and pleasant. The weeds are certainly loving it...

    The growth of tobacco is divided in to 3 phases. The first phase lasts about 4 weeks and the plant spends most of its energy putting down roots. The next phase is the Rapid growth phase and finally at roughly 60 days the Reproductive phase kicks in.

    Re: Are these ready for the garden?

    Ok, so I just weeded and amended another section of our yard that is relatively dry, well drained and in full sun. I have room for 3-4 more plants. What variety would you recommend? I have available: Corojo 99, Criollo 98, Vuelta Abajo, Florida Sumatra, Havana 142, and little Dutch. I'm most in rich, cuban-like cigars. Thanks!

    Please save a lot of the corojo 99 seed, I know a few people including myself that want this strain for next year and it's not available on nwtseeds afaik.
