• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

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".
