• 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.

MCB was an outstanding leaf on one plant that survived in my patch a few years back.

Unfortunately I lost the seed from it, and am looking for some more to plant this year.

Does anybody have seed they'd like to sell or swap?

Pretty plant and sort of compact. Would you crowd them up a little and if so what spacing do you recommend planted offset in a double row?

Tim,
Now that I've paid attention to that photo, it really looks like a burley, rather than a Havana or Spanish type, so I'd say you've got MC Yellow.

Plants were staggered . 2' apart in rows and 3' between rows. A few rows evidently were in better soil and produced much larger plants. The pic shown developed buds weeks before some of the surrounding plants. The rows with best healthiest plants would have been to crowded with smaller spacing between plants, rows could have been a few inchs closer. I'm hoping to keep better records this yr. for age of plants to relate better to photos.This was worst drought for many yrs in this area and I believe it shows in plant height. some of the shaded grew to over 4'. They were first transplanted and last to mature. Not the short robust plant but taller and thinner leaves. no support was needed but they took forever to top out and produce a flowering seed pod. They are not picted.
