Cigar Safari: Don Pepin Garcia’s Seedling Nursery
Here we get to see the Nursery where the seeds are planted and the tobacco plant begins to grow. This environment gives extra care and proper light and nutrients to the plant until it is ready to be replanted in the tobacco fields. Once ready to be replanted, each one is grouped with other plants of the same height and condition. If certain plants are growing faster with bigger leaves, then they will be selected first.
Take a look at the seeds, learn more about the soil, and discover the time it takes the tobacco to go from a planted seed inside the nursery and then into the fields.
Thank you Don Pepin Garcia for taking the time to show us through the Nursery, and thank you to Drew Estate for making this opportunity possible! There is much more to share from the Cigar Safari in Nicaragua!
