I normally would have, but the other day when in the chat room (I've been a cigar smoking member of Puff for a bit now), and asked the same question to pipers that were in there, they said to go post the question as they didn't believe it had been asked before and also wanted to know the info. Thanks for the warm welcome folks!
I do recall seeing a post or two on growing tobacco. Hang around awhile and you will see the info you seek, or, try your hand at the search button. Some times, not always, when I do a search, I find something I look for.
