Hi I am brand new to this site and have joined to make sure I understand what exactly I am getting into and if I can actually do what I plan.

I have become quite fond of hand rolling my own cigarettes. I think my next step is to grow my own tobacco. The problem is I will be living in a dorm room the next semester and am unsure if I can germinate, grow, and cure, all inside the small confines of my dorm. Here is the floor plan for the room.

I was thinking of moving the tv to the side and growing directly beneath the window.

Basically I have 4 questions to start:

Is growing and curing in such a small space even possible?
Are there any strains of cigarette tobacco that are smaller and more adept to fit my limited space?
What lighting and temperature controls would I need to have to keep the plants healthy?
How big should the pots be, in length, width, and height?

YES!

Almost a perfect spot to germinate a few dozen baccy seeds!
Right there by your side, handy, you can mist the surface any time to keep it perfect...

IMO
Soon as you begin transferring the sprouts to pots, you should speak with people in your building maintenance department (grounds staff), people in the Ag department, or undertake a guerrilla grow not far from your daily walking path.

Good luck

Thanks rc,

I don't suppose you can suggest any hardy strains that also grow on the smaller side.

(Flavors I enjoy: Samson Halfzware Shag, Marlboro 27s, Marlboro Southern Cuts, Parliaments, and a few others. My tastes are very broad and so feel free to suggest anything that meets the size preferences of mine more than the flavor.)
