Default Re: Making your own shisha

Tobacco needs to be "topped" while it's growing , meaning that the flower stalk is removed. You would also have to inspect and hand pick tobacco and tomato hornworms from your leaves unless you plan to use pesticides on them. Here is a picture of a tobacco hornworm...

lovely critters aren't they? You would also need to find a place to cure the leaves after harvest. There is alot more work to growing tobacco then people think. By the time you plant, fertilize, pick hornworms off of it, top it and cure it you might as well buy roll your own tobacco from an online store to make your own shisha out of. I'm not trying to talk you out of trying this, but just letting you know it's really more trouble than it's worth.
