It's a good thing they've done away with the Tobacco Allotment Program. You could have been fined heavily for growing leaf.

Medical tobacco!
Get people to sign a petition to make the gov pay for it.

Keep us updated, I thought tobacco (tomaco for Homer Simpson) was reasonable easy to grow. Now grow some good Connecticut cigar wrappers and roll some good puros!!!
Seriously, I support medical marijuana, it's the medical meth I draw the line at.

The government frowns on you having seeds and growing your own, and smoking the leaves.

Oh, never mind, thats a different plant. (For the time being)

In a related note, there is a bill in congress that would allow you to distill your own spirits for personal use. I hope it passes, I have an old shine recipe I want to try.

I'm proud of you for growing it.

Picking and curing it will be a bugger (the stuff ITCHES!)So wear long sleeves and work fast.

Good luck! ;)

(Yeah, the worst summer job I ever had was working in a tobacco barn).

Someone told me that nicotine is a natural insect repellant. Is this true?

I've read several reports it's true....I make "butt tea" in a five gallon pail and use it around the foundation of the house,since doing that I have no spiders in the basement or under the eaves of the house...so,try it!

But I think your question is,do you need to treat your plants for tobacco cravers,that I don't know

Be sure to post your experiences of the no-knock warrant process as your local LEO's bust down your door because of your "indoor growing equipment"

Seriously, good luck with your endeavor!

Careful, the BATF may just hear about your little project and come kick in your door, shoot your dog, and burn down your house. </F-Troop rant>

You know, not to be an ass, but the best places for advice may be pot forums. I would imagine a lot of the same techniques would work.

When you transplant it and it grows, DO NOT WORK IN SHORTS OR SHORT SLEVES! Wear gloves too.

Never walk through a field of tobacco in shorts, very unpleasant. The nicotine is secreted by the plant to ward off critters that might eat it, works on unsuspecting humans too.

I recommend first sprouting the dormant seeds, then planting the sprouts. Begin by soaking the dry seeds in room temperature water overnight (about eight hours). Drain the seeds and place them in a jar with netting or cheesecloth on top so they can breath. Rinse the seeds twice a day and let them drain upside down. When they have sprouted, follow these directions.

I can remember riding through South Georgia and seeing a large amount of tobacco on the shoulder of the road where it had blown off wagons taking it to market.

I don't smoke but it occurred to me that if I did, I could stop and pick up enough to last a lifetime. Of course I don't know how to cure it either.

http://www.virtualseeds.com/tobacco-main.html

Tobacco used to be widely grown in home gardens, and is still widely grown as an ornamental (Nicotiana).

Unless you live in a rural area, curing it is unlikely to be easy enough to make it worth your time.

Extracted nicotine is a deadly poison, to insects animals and people, and has been illegal for many years I think.

If unused tobacco seeds are like typical veggie seeds, they'll keep a while. I keep leftover seeds from veggie and flower packets in a zippered plastic bag in my fridge. Most of the seeds sprout just fine 4-5 years or more after the date stamped on the packet. Just keep them from molding; make sure they're not put away damp.
