• 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.

Do all Rusticas germ faster than others?

Yup, they usually do. Some people get sprouts in 48 hours if conditions are just right. Tobaccums usually take 5 days or more.

I've only grown one variety of Rustica (Sacred Cornplanter) It was seed from Deluxestogie and it sprouted withing 48 hours (just like skychaser said!)

I've done 3 strains and I concur they have all popped before other types.

I can't say my germination rates for rusticas are 48, but they do germ faster than the other tobaccums I germed at the same time.
Reason for bringing this up is a grow out strain that I'm working on, C-918 . Germed much faster than the other 3 strains that I'm working on. All the strains I am told are tobaccum, but the germ rate of this particular one has me intrigued. To add, the radicle; stalk of the germed seed, is much longer, and thicker than any other tobaccum/rustica seed that I have germed.

im curious about this C-918 variety that I've never heard of. most N tabacum seedlings are short but there are some that are "leggy" (ones with long radicles) like N rustica seedlings. there are even some which germinate in curly q's that seem to initially lack proper orientation signals (a hypothesis of mine).

Speaking of, I had an unidentified germination recently (my critters ripped through my seed stash so I tossed em in a pot of soil....)
They all seem very tiny, almost pointed cotyledons, I thought they where rustica, but they might also be rhoeas poppies, or yaka.
I'm thinking of culling them seeing as it's out of season, but whatever was in the bag would be lost to my collection.
