(Ocimum tenuiflorum, also known as Ocimum sanctum, or Tulasi) Purplish green-leaved Krishna Tulsi variety.Perennial .

Tulasi (Sanskrit:-Surasa) has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda. It is mentioned in the Charaka Samhita, an ancient Ayurvedic text. Marked by its strong aroma and astringent taste, it is regarded in Ayurveda as a kind of “elixir of life”. Don’t buy expensive Tulsi tea. Grow your own! It grows like crazy and is super easy to grow.

HOW TO GROW: Tulsi can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions. Tulsi Basil plants benefit from regular fertilizer feeding.

DO NOT COVER the seeds with soil but gently press into soil. Keep moist, not letting the seeds dry out between watering. Also, the SOIL should be kept consistently warm at 70-85F. If the indoor temperature is 70, the soil temp would be about 10 deg cooler than that. Cool soils, below about 60-65F, even just at night, will significantly delay or inhibit germination. Additionally, overly warm soils, well above 90F, can inhibit germination and provide ideal conditions for seed rot. Over watering can cause fungal growth which leads to seed rot.

Excess water can also bury seeds deep in the soil where they will not be able break the surface. Water when the soil surface just begins to dry.

Keep the container covered with a plastic bag on the top of the fridge or near the water heater where the room temperature is higher, therefore the soil temperature is perfect for germination. Allow proper air circulation for containers (make small holes in the cover).

When the plants reach about 2″ tall, transplant to larger containers or outdoors.

Spacing: Rows 18 in. apart; thin 6-8 inches
Hardiness: Zones 4-9

Once the seedlings are about one inch tall, you can remove the cover for 2-3 hours so they adapt to the sun light, temperature and air humidity level. At this time, you may place the container closer to the sun light. But keep them covered at night until they get stronger
