Description for Krishna Tulsi
Krishna Tulsi or purple leaf Tulsi grows in many parts of India. It is especially useful for curing respiratory infections, ear infections, and skin problems. It grows slower than other varieties, which may contribute to its spicy, pungent flavor and odor. Purple leaf basil is also less bitter and astringent than other tulsi.
Basil is considered a royal and sacred herb.
Planting and care
Sow seeds outdoors in late spring or early summer, when the temperature range around 21 degrees C. For an earlier start in spring, sow the seeds indoors or on a sunny windowsill. Place the tulsi seeds on top of the soil. Water the seeds with the sprayer.
Caring for Krishna Tulsi
- Water a plant when the soil feels dry to touch. Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering for the winter & rainy season.
- Try to water the plants in the morning around 8-10am.
- You should remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and throw in the garbage collector.
- You should prune and fertilize a plant mostly in the spring season.
- When a plant grows beyond its limit and pot size not providing enough space for the spread of roots, re-pot with fresh soil and some fertilizer.
- While re-potting, try not to disturb the roots. Avoid any drastic change in the provided environment otherwise, the plants may get stress/shock.
- For any insect attack or disease, you can use Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil or Citrus oil spray for primary treatment.
