About Stevia Rebaudiana

Planting and care

  • Stevia plants do best in a rich, loamy soil — the same kind in which common garden-variety plants thrive
  • Since the feeder roots tend to be quite near the surface, it is a good idea to add compost for extra nutrients if the soil in your area is sandy
  • Avoid excess watering and cold
  • 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
  • Keep the soil evenly moist
  • If you find pests, spray with a mild insecticide

Stevia Rebaudiana care

  • It would be difficult, at best, to start a stevia patch from scratch that is, by planting seeds
  • Stevia can be started from seed indoors in late winter
  • The stevia seeds need sunlight for the germination process
  • Germination is best at 70 to 75 degrees F
  • Seedlings should emerge in 7 to 21 days
  • When seedlings are large enough to handle, you can transplant them into 3-inch diameter pots
  • Even if you could get them to germinate, results might well prove disappointing, since stevioside levels can vary greatly in plants grown from seed
