Different Types How to Grow and Care for Plants
Fill a flower pot with high quality soil and water it thoroughly. You should leave about an inch of space at the top of the pot. Add enough water to make the soil very moist, but don’t add too much water, because you don’t want the soil to be soggy.
Sow the seeds inch 0.64 cm beneath the soil. Because Tulsi seeds are so small simply sprinkle the seeds on top of the soil, then gently press them down into the surface using your fingers or a small tamper.
Keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate. The seeds will begin to grow in about 1-2 weeks. Because the seeds are so delicate, try using a spray bottle to lightly mist the surface of the soil. If you are pouring water into the pot, do so slowly and carefully so you don’t disrupt the seeds.
Place the Tulsi near a warm, sunny window. Your plant requires 6-8 hours of sunlight a day and temperatures of at least 21 °C. Set the pot in an area where it can receive plenty of indirect sunlight.
Water your Tulsi when the top layer of soil becomes dry. You should check your plant at least twice a week to see if it needs to be watered. If the top of the soil is dry, water it.
Fertilize your plant once a month. Use a liquid fertilizer or organic compost, such as cow manure, to maintain the nutrients in the soil. An application once a month will help your plant continue to thrive.
Prune the tops of the tulsi weekly to encourage growth. Once your tulsi has 3 sets of leaves on a stem-1 at the top and 2 on the sides—you can begin pruning. Cut off the top set of leaves, just above the other 2 sets of leaves
Transplant your tulsi once it has outgrown its pot. Once you notice the roots growing out of the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, it’s time to transfer the plant to a larger pot. Depending on the size of pot you used to start, you may need to do this a couple of times.
