Answer: I'd grow tobacco like nicotiana --- they are more closely related than tomatoes and tobacco (but all three are solancaea). Plant in full sun, well drained soil heavily amended with compost or manures and keep it well watered throughout the growing season. Certain pests such as horn worms will be a problem, but it would be better to contact your State Department of Agriculture for more guidelines on growing it in your state. If you're in the South, there should be plenty of information available.
