Nicotiana rustica seeds should be sprinkled across the surface of a well draining soil mix and pressed in lightly. Mist the seeds to avoid displacement during watering due to their small size. Keep temperatures between 70-75°F and keep moist, but not soaking wet.  Seeds should begin germinating within 1-3 weeks. Small seedlings can be transplanted once established. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
