Some life!

by

Package says 100 seeds. I planted all, only Ten sprouted. (still in their preemie stage) Planted seeds on 08-13-20. I think I saw a little life around the 16th day or 17th. day. it is now 0/19/20. Now trying to get them to grow tall and strong is the next step. Disappointed that out of 100 seeds ??? only ten sprouted. I have never had success in growing stevia seeds... Wish me well!

Excellent Herb!

Wanted to try some stevia to get a homegrown sweetener. The packet had way more seed than any other companies. I planted about 4-5 seeds in 6 pots, started them indoors under lights & I think every single seed must have sprouted, more than I needed so I shared with the neighbors. Plants grew well all summer & I snipped them back to make extract (which worked amazingly well). Then I let them flower, small insignificant flowers that no pollinators seemed to like. They didn't set any seeds though, but I still have plenty left in the packet to plant again this year.
