The quick and convenient step by step guide to growing your Stevia Seeds!
Stevia is a rewarding plant to grow in the herb garden! It is a tender perennial that is native to subtropical regions. Wild Stevia plants often grow on the edges of marches or streams. The Sweet Leaf herb plant can be successfully grown in the herb garden in almost any region. It prefers a well-drained sandy loam. Raised beds ensure that the roots do not have too much moisture, and organic compost and regular watering give adequate moisture and nutrients. In colder, northern climates, grow Stevia herb plants as annuals.
How to Grow Stevia Seeds
#1 | Start the Stevia seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost date.
# 2 | Sprinkle your seeds into the soil and with a flat hand press the seeds firmly into the soil. The seeds need light to germinate so its best they are not too deep.
#3 | Keep Stevia seeds consistently moist by watering from the bottom of the container. A plastic dome or plastic wrap over the tray or containers is helpful in keeping the moisture in.
#4 | Seedlings should emerge in 7-21 days.
