Product description

Tabacco from this tabacco species has been cultivated for over hundreds of years. Tabacco has its origins in the Caribbean area, and was used for medical purposes. It also proved to be an effective insecticide at plantations, and was used as a bug repellent. Tabacco was advertised as both a decorative plant and a ‘wonder drug’ in Europe, but already in the 17th century it proved to be less healthy than previously assumed. The medicinal application disappeared, but the use of tabacco kept rising in popularity. The leaves contain 2-8% nicotine, and is therefore very addictive. In the 18th century it became a symbol of status for the rich, who started to smoke tabacco with a pipe. The cigarette was later introduced, and is still very popular. Currently, China is the biggest producer of tabacco.

The plant can be grown in the garden as an annual plant. It is a decorative plant with big leaves (up to 60 cm), and pink flowers. The leaves can be harvested in summer, and can be dried for 6-8 weeks. It is a cultivated species that is probably a hybrid of three wild tabacco  species.

Sowing instructions: Sow the small seeds very close to the surface in a sowingmixture, and cover the pot with glas or plastic foil. Germination occurs after a few weeks, keep the soil constantly moist and put the pot in a light area.

Succesvol binnen gezaaid in de tray.
Half mei mogen ze buiten fluiten.
Vanaf augustus in de pijp.

Ik heb inmiddels twee keer een uitstekende oogst met dit zaad kunnen bereiken. Het vergde wat online studeer werk om te weten te komen hoe het nou precies moet met drogen en fermenteren. De schuur bleek uiteindelijk niet ideaal voor het drogen; veel te koud en veel te nat.
Uiteindelijk de bijkeuken volgehangen waar de luchtvochtigheid en temperatuur beter te reguleren waren .
Afgelopen jaar ondanks twijfels vooraf de gesneden tabak in de magnetron gefermenteerd. Het resultaat was uitstekend. Veel beter dan het jaar daarvoor toen ik wat op de centrale verwarming aan het klooien was met plastic bakjes van de Chinees. De oogst van afgelopen september/ oktober ben ik nu aan het roken. Het is niet scherp en je gaat er niet van hoesten. Het is een stuk minder verslavend dan tabak uit de winkel want dit is puur tabaksblad zonder extra verslavende toevoegingen.

3 weken geleden (begin februari) gezaaid in kleine potjes met stekgrond. Na ongeveer 10 dagen eerste gekiemde zaailingen te zien, rest volgde enkele dagen later. Onder gewone tl-lamp gezet, nu kleine plantjes, zien er goed uit. Planning begin mei naar balkon in grote potten.
Prima zaad, goede kiemkracht!
