I don't top mine until the flowers start to bloom. Usually topping is done when 50% of the crop is in bloom and about 2-3 weeks before harvest. They still grow quite a bit more after the buds first appear and topping early will cause the suckers to grow faster. Be sure to bag any plants you want to save seed from before the flowers open.


How high are your plants when you are topping them??

I though I will be harvesting maybe in August, as you can see some of my plants started flowering, rest of them have just buds. Dont you find some of my plants to be a bit low? I am afraid if I top them in 4-5 feet I will be harvesting dwarves..

I've never heard of VP-9. Looks kinda like Dell Gold or Big Gem does. Virginia bright leaf types usually grow to about 5-6 feet, including the flower head. Some maybe a little more. Yours sound about right. What ever you got, those are some damn nice plants you have growing! Who did you get the seed from?

There is one guy growing multiple strains of tobacco every year so I took the seeds from him.
