Nicotiana forsteri is named after Johann Georg Adam Forster (1754–1794) who, with his father, accompanied Captain James Cook on his second voyage to the Pacific (1772–1775). Native to Lord Howe Island where it is found occasionally and scattered at lower altitudes. Also known from Australia (coastal and near-coastal NSW and Qld), and from New Caledonia. Synonym Nicotiana debneyi. Nicotiana forsteri info at Flora SA

Care and Cultivation of Nicotiana forsteri

Does not require any special treatment to germinate. Simply sow like other tobacco seeds (sprinkle on the surface of a good quality sandy/well drained potting mix and water in gently. Germination will occur within 7-21 days. Keep moist until germination. Likes plenty of roots pace in a sandy/well drained position. Full sun. Drought tolerant. I find this species does best in SE QLD autumn and winter.

Approx 20+ seeds per packet
