We offer you a limited amount of seeds of the sacred “shamanic” tobacco, the plant Nicotiana rustica (so-called Mapacho).

Suitable for home cultivation, even in European climates it is possible to grow, with a little care, beautiful and large tobacco plants.

Nicotiana rustica;, also known as “Aztec tobacco” or Mapacho, is an annual plant originally from South America that grows to a height of about 1 m. It blooms with yellow flowers and contains a large amount of nicotine.

Compared to Virginia tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum species), however, it is less demanding to grow. It tolerates different types of soil, does not mind less frequent watering, low temperatures, etc.

Tobacco seeds are very tiny, even smaller than poppy seeds. In 1 gram you get about 3000-4000 seeds.

How to grow tobacco?

Tobacco seeds are sown from February to March in a heated substrate or at home in pots. They are sown shallowly or directly on the surface at a distance of a few cm from each other. It is appropriate to moisten the seed and cover it with foil, or you can use a mini-heater. Gradually, the seeds will begin to germinate.

Grown plants with leaf sizes of 10-20 cm are planted after the last frosts in an outdoor location or in a greenhouse, at a distance of 50 cm from each other. They are suited to full sun and a lighter, warming soil, with a neutral pH, which should be spaded to a depth of at least 20 cm.

During the growing season, the plants are regularly watered and loosened.

Harvest time comes when the leaves begin to turn yellow from below. The leaves are dried in a dark, well-ventilated room for 2-3 months. In order to obtain better quality tobacco, it is advisable to carry out fermentation, which consists in moistening the dried leaves again and keeping them in containers without access to air at a temperature of about 40 °C for a month. Dry the fermented leaves in a warm room for about 4 days.
