Fairy Plant Nicotiana
(Nicotiana incognita) Annual. “incognita” simply means “unknown” because we are not sure what species this is. Our best guess is that it’s Nicotiana texana, since its general morphology is very much like Nicotiana rustica, but with narrower leaves that are almost triangular, and flowers that are not as barrel-shaped, though still yellow. Has a fairy-plant sort of appearance. Grows to three feet in height.
Planting 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 rich soil, water, and full sun. Can container-grow in a 5-gallon bucket.
Contains at least 50 seeds
