This is my first time growing tobacco for fun, pleasent green at home, to make snuff for personal use and maybe save som money.
Ive been reading a bit on wiki, it says oxidization is what makes tobacco cure/age/mature take out the harsh.
Im wondering about if the oxidization of caratenoids and chlorophyll in tobacco curing is from O2 in air (or solved in water) and/or from O in H2O itself?
From what i remember, from school and various archeology programs on tv, wood in sea bed with no O2 solved in it doesnt rot but metals will rust. ?
At what relative humidity at room temperature will tobacco leaves sealed in a jar (in fall and winter the relative humidity in my apartment will drop too much for curing tobacco, i guess) cause them to cure? If air is required, how much?
