I just got my first batch of tobacco to sprout and I noticed that the leaves all have an upward curve to them. I'm wondering if this is a ph issue since I used a different potting soil than I have in the past. Anyone have any tips on proper ph levels for tobacco or anything else that'll help me fix this problem?

Check your N and Mg levels. I think this is caused by too much fert.

proper Ph for tobacco is 5.8-6.2

Upward curve??? what the heck does that look like. There is a midrib extending from the stalk to the tip of the leaf. Are they curling toward the midrib, or the other direction where the midrib is curling at the tip?

What's your lighting cycle? Are they getting to hot?
