Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars
This was my first time growing tobacco. I started the seeds in a cup of potting soil with a sandwich bag over it as a humidadome. I took the bag off at least once a day just to get in fresh air. Temps were about 75-80f. Used a powerful 56w COB style LED. Eventually transplanted in pots when they got bigger and grew amazing. I used an organic potting soil higher in nitrogen. Eventually I put them outside and they love the Michigan summer weather. Grew flowers already too. These make a nice low maintenance decoration. I had deer bite the top off of one. Otherwise they don’t seem to track animals. Doesn’t seem like bugs like the leaves much either. The leaves are covered in sticky nodules. You can feel it stick to your skin however it comes off somewhat easy. I do not smoke tobacco very often but I did try a dried leaf. It tasted like a Camel brand cigarette but with a fresher taste. I have smoked tobacco on rare occasions for over 20 years and never became addicted to or craved nicotine. I am also sensitive to nicotine and did not notice any nicotine like effects. I did however only use a very small amount. It’s exciting to see the changes in growth of the plant every morning. These are very cool plants. Also makes a great gift for fellow gardener my enthusiasts. My friends were very happy to grow a plant of their own.

Got my seeds earlier when I ordered and they are doing great. They germinated pretty well and they are growing splendidly. I couldn't be happier. I'm definitely going to order more! The picture is one of the thriving crops.
I received my seeds quickly.
I got a good germination rate.
