WG,  this tobacco came from T-Birds stock some years ago by way of Adrian.  I really don't know anything about tobacco or growing it..

As I understand it you are not to let it bloom if your going to use it..


Maybe T-Bird knows something about it..


We used to tell folks who asked about it, that it was collards.. 😁


Thanks for the comments..

The reason you top tobacco is to break the growth cycle. It will start to "sucker" and those must be removed. If you keep the suckers off of it, it forces the plant to put it's energy into producing a longer, wider leaf. The standard is to leave 21 leaves on each plant.

Your flowers are beautiful !

I grew tobacco a few years ago. The seeds are very tiny.


Thanks Wade for the info I didn't know anything about how to grow properly. I just wanted to see if I could grow it .


The flowers were pretty.
