Used ceremonially by the Hopi people, this stiking tobacco yields dark green leaves and yellow-green night blooming blossoms. The flowers open in the dusk and hang in clusters. The leaves of this plant are very high in nicotine and should be used for their ceremonial value. Transplant or direct seed after last frost. Annual.
To start tobacco sprinkle tiny seeds in a tray of potting soil and keep evenly moist until germination, 5-10 days. Allow the fledgling plant to aquire some size and then transplant into a large pot. When plants have leaves that are 2 inches transplant into the garden. I'm sure tobacco could also be direct seeded in the garden, however, this is the method we have had the most luck with.
