• 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.

Whole Leaf Tobacco

What's been your most disappointing and/or most surprising tobacco grown so far?

There is still a very active seed community here, look around and send some pm's, just because the owner is done with the free seed promo (and who can blame him lol) doesn't mean others don't have it and won't share, sell or trade it. One thing about this hobby is you accumulate more seed in more varieties than you know what to do with.

Looking for Copan seed - PI 116071

OK- so just wanted to let it be known the Copan PI 116071 is a variety that I would like to try because it has a high sucroester and nicotine content. PM me if you have some available. I can send a
SASE. Plus any growing and curing info would be helpful.

I'm missing something.

A member is looking for seeds....I post a blurb about "Regular contributing members can still request seeds, just send me a PM."....the next post is a member looking for seeds that are in the FTT collection.

I would like to see a new forum category called Specific Strains. In it, would be threads on specific strains of tobacco, so let's say you were considering Habano 2000, you would see if someone started a thread on it and then read all about other grower's/smoker's experiences with it. There would be no duplicate threads or general tobacco categories allowed. It would be very specific.

I'll second that...would make it much easier for a search engine within the forum .
For example- what are you smoking ...same idea.
Proposed new FTT category - "What are you growing?" Sub-title with the specific variety/strain.
Thank you to admins .

ChinaVoodoo - after actually going into the main page "menu" as it were. I realized there already is a place for discussing specific varieties and strains...its titled as "Types of Tobacco(growers Forum)" ,just need to locate the type and go from there.

Oh, yeah. Facepalm. It's a little overgrown with non specific threads though. If we were to contribute enough specific threads, those would disappear somewhat. Perhaps if everyone started one which they new well and another they'd like to know about, the category would fill in.
