Mapacho Tobacco is most widely known for its use in ceremonies and other special occasions in South America, Vietnam and elsewhere. Compared to other types of tobacco, it has a significantly higher nicotine content-often as high as 9% versus the 1-3% found in most other types. This is partially attributed to the rich growing conditions found in the rain forests of South America and southeast Asia. For best results, your chosen site for Mapacho should have relatively more organic, mycorrhizae-rich, moist content than those of typical tobacco. In addition to its ceremonial applications, Mapacho is often used in organic pesticides due to the aversion of beetles and other pests to nicotine.
Tobacco should be grown in a sunny location on well-drained soils. Poorly drained soils could result in poor growth and even death of the plants. Tobacco can be grown on poorly-drained soils if the rows or hills are bedded and ditches or furrows are used to remove excess water. Drought stress could limit growth on excessively drained soils unless irrigation is provided. Lack of sun will result in spindly plants, poor growth and thin leaves.
