    Hello from Georgia

    First time tobacco grower here, just started a tray (maybe 25 plants) of VA Gold and they are about 3 weeks along.

    Will have lots of questions as things progress, hope to plant them outdoors in another 4-5 weeks (along with a bunch of other herbs/veggies).

    One thing that I find challenging is the subject of curing in large part because of all the confusing terminology, but that won't be an issue for many months (if my plants do well) so right now I am just focused on growing the seedlings and then settling them in outdoors.

    Welcome and good luck
    Read the FAQ, the curing terminology is not as complicated as it seems.

    Since you choose a "flue cured" strain, you might be interested in builing a "flue curing chamber", or you can try some "sun curing".
    It will give you more sweetness in your leaves than with "air curing".
