Stevia Rebaudiana - 10 Gm Seeds
Common name: sweetleaf
Bloom time: July to August
Height: 1.00 to 2.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow
Planting & Care
Choose 1-year-old plants grown from seeds or cuttings. Cut them back to about 6 inches, and prune roots as necessary to settle them into 6-inch containers with a light-textured potting mix. Move your stevia plants to a warm, sunny location indoors, or to a heated greenhouse.
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: 32 F to 35 F
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- The recommended method is rather to buy garden-ready ‘starter’ plants, which given stevia’s ‘growing’ popularity, may well be obtainable from a nursery or herbalist in your area — provided you’re willing to scout around a bit.
- If you’re not, or are unsuccessful in locating any, there are at least three growers of high-quality stevia who will ship you as many baby plants as you’d like.
Harvesting: Harvest in the morning, after dew has evaporated. Plants are easily dried by hanging upside down in a dry, warm, drafty location
- Plant your stevia so that it has about 18 inches of room to call its own.
- In the loose, loamy, well-drained soil that the plant prefers, it will grow 1 to 3 feet in height, depending on the length of your growing season.
- Wait until after all danger of frost has passed before planting.
Annual for herb garden. Window box or clay pot.
No serious insect or disease problems.
