Update on growing the herb Stevia the sugar plant.
Growing Stevia from seed.
Hi Gardening Friends
Well here is an update on growing Stevia from seed. Finally the Stevia haves germinated and which now they are getting their true leaves. That means that the young seedlings have the leaves that look like the adult Stevia. And the seedlings have passed the seedling stage of growth. It will be a while before the seedlings are ready to be used. They need to grow bigger and then you can transplant them into pots. After the plants grow to about six to eight inches tall you can start using the leaves were you normally use sugar.
You can use the leaves in any recipe that sugar is used.
When you bake you can use the leaves instead of sugar. Which is great for people that is on a diet and needs to get off of using sugar. which this is a great substitute. So I hope the three hubs that I did on growing Stevia
really help people that is serious about growing this herb and using it instead of sugar.
I hope this update helps my Gardening Friends with growing of Stevia from seed. If you grow Stevia from seed let me know how you are doing with it.
