I planted seeds in foam egg cartons in late Feb. I had other earlier batches that got eaten by slugs. But this current batch doesn't seem to be going anywhere. They're still sitting at a quarter of an inch tall. With leaves barely larger than a 16th of an inch. I regularly water them from the bottom and they seem otherwise healthy. Is this normal or is there something I need to do?
I'm growing black mammoth, Florida Sumatra, and Habana.

How many days has it been since you seeded them? Tobacco grows VERY slowly the first 3-4 weeks. Hardly looks like it is growing at all. That's normal. Have patience. You should see a big difference in the next week or so.

hmmm Cold temps will make them grow much slower than normal, but since you are in southern Cali, I'm guessing that's not what's slowing them down. What did you use for starter soil? Can you post a pict of them for us to see?

my baccy sprouts in SoCal are also growing very slowly, because of overnight cold... tomatoes, too.
