• 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.

But look at all the lovely tobacco you are going to be able to grow if you can get more of them transplanted then plant out. Then you can time age your leaves over the next couple of years while you grow smaller crops next year and the year after and in three years time every year you will be smoking leaf that you have time aged for three nears in the natural method rather than in a kiln like I am. Well I think thats right I know I read that somewhere that grow three times more than you need year one. Then year two twice as much as you need. Then year three what you need yearly but you are now smoking the last of your first years leaf.

It seems that some seeds, almost all sprout, and others, only a few sprout. Once you get a few you types you like, you'll be able to keep the seeds fresh that you grow. Yes, it's better that most all came up.

I plant a extra tray for each type.
Then set it and forget it on the top shelf. Oops I forgot to water them.
