well i got into this great idea a little too late to grow outside so i just decided to start some indoors as an experiment and to have something green to look at during the winter. as for what strain i have, i dunno. just got some free seeds labeled 'huge leaf tobacco'.

Sept. 1

Sept. 6

Sept. 13

Sept. 20 (burn mark on the one leaf is where my light fell over onto the leaf)
Image

Sept. 24 (after i re potted and split the 2 plants)
Image

Sept. 25 (in their new setup and popping back up after repotting)
Image

Oct. 1 (the big one is about 12-16 inches tall)
Image

now i know they are too cramped in there but its purely experimental. i have another light i plan on setting up, but sadly i accidentally smashed the light bulb. oops. like i said, this is just a first try and an experiment to keep me busy. ill be growing outside in the new year. lemme know what you think!

I think they look pretty good for indoors. Judging from the white stems and veins, I suspect that they are a variety of burley, though I could be wrong.

If you allow them a little sunshine during warmer periods, be very stingy with it, since they will burn easily, until they are accustomed to it.

Good luck with them. Keep us posted.

Awesome looking plants! Looks like you're using construction clamp lights similar to mine, which is encouraging for me.

What type of bulbs are you using? Just one light per plant? I'm using 3 18w 6500K bulbs and 1 60w incandescent (for heat, since we keep a cool house through the winter to save oil.)

P.S. I've started a grow log for my indoor garden in the Grow Log forum. :)

Wow, they can grow this much in a month? What are you feeding them, is that normal? :shock:

Any special fertilizer?
