  2. I live in Hawaii…and, my husband and I have decided to try our hand at growing our own tabacco. We ran across several plants at a friends coffee mill, and with his permission, we pulled up several plants. My question is, what are the chances of these plants surviving? We immediatly transplanted them in large pots with Miracle Grow organic potting soil. We are planning on moving them to a higher elevation in a couple of weeks to a friends farm. The plants seemed to be pretty stressed out today…just wondering what tips ytou may have for us??? Thanks!
