  • So take care not to overwater them and to make sure the soil in which they are planted drains easily and isnà ¢ÃƒÆ’ ¢Ãƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã… ¡ ¬ÃƒÆ’ ¢Ãƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã… ¾ ¢t soggy or subject to flooding or puddling.
  • Frequent light watering is recommended during the summer months. Adding a layer of compost or your favorite mulch around each stevia plant will help keep the shallow feeder roots from drying out.
