Hi guys, just what would cause my Havana leaf to cure yellow and not brown is this normal?View attachment 48466
How close to the ground were those particular leaves? You'll notice darker and darker leaves the closer you get to the top.
These are taken from one (Bahia) plant:

There are dozens of "Havana" varieties. Some are darker than others. As stated above, upper leaf is always darker than lower leaf. Also, kilning will tend to darken the leaf somewhat. In your photo, I see some awfully nice Claro wrapper.

Thanks Bob, yeah I thought it would make a solid wrap as well. Next year I'll hopefully be more organized growing leaf, I really only started out just wanting to try a few potted plants but what I started grew better than I thought so I was rather unprepared.
