nothing special is needed for tobacco...
just sprinkle the seeds on some soil and keep moist.

heres what errowid has to say:

Quote:

Cultivation and Propagation: Tobacco grows best in a rich, sandy loam. It is easily grown from seed. These should be started in flats of finely sifted soil indoors in the early spring. Because they are very small they should be mixed with sand and sown thinly on the surface of the soil, and lightly pressed in with a small, flat object. The flat should be watered only with a fine spray or perfusion from the bottom. When the seed has germinated move the flat to a sunny position. When the seedlings are large enough to handle they may be transplanted to small pots or moved directly to the garden if the weather is warm enough. The plants should be set out a foot apart in rows 3 feet apart. They should have a warm sunny location with plenty of water when the weather is hot and dry.

Flower buds should be picked off as they appear. This will increase the size and thickness of the leaves. A plant or two may be allowed to flower, because they are beautiful.

Tobacco is susceptible to many insect pests, fungi, and viral blights.

Tobacco is one of the worst soil depleters. After each season the soil in which it has been grown must be heavily fertilized.

I grew some of the Shirazi 'Wild' Tobacco (N.rustica) last year and let me tell you it grows like a weed. In my part of the world, southern BC, it likes filtered sunlight or afternoon shade, lots of water, and a steady food regiment. My mom is a little choked at me for the million and half tobacco seedlings that germinated forming an immense mat of green all through out her veggie garden :crazy:.
If you plan on smoking some, make sure to dry it as slowly as possible, my brother invented a small tupperware drying container, so far he has been able to get some nice smokeables, not to mention the blunt wraps.
Also to be noted, dried, ground tobacco leaf steeped in water makes a great insecticide :smile:
