(Nicotiana acuminata) – Annual in the Nightshade Family, native to Chile. Small white flowers. To five feet high. Foliage smells like Tomatoes. Rare. We originally acquired seed for this plant from a Chilean source, and are one of the few purveyors in the Northern Hemisphere.
Cultivation & harvesting suggestions: Press tiny seeds onto surface of already-moistened soil. Keep pots in a water-filled tray in a sunny, warm location. Avoid surface watering until germination, except with a mister. After first set of true leaves have sized up, thin to one plant per pot and transplant out. Give plants full sun. Grows in waste-places in its native land, so soil doesn’t need to be rich, but like any weedy plant, it will respond to fertilizing. Drought-tolerant once established. Can container-grow in a 5-gallon bucket.
Contains at least 500 seeds. Packed for 2013.
