Tulsi, Krishna -- Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), packet of 50 seeds, organic

(KrishnaTulsi, Purple Tulsi, Shyam Tulsi)  "Oh, Narada! Every house, every village, every forest, wherever the plant of Tulsi is grown, there misery, fear, disease and poverty do not exist." Krishna tulsi bears leaves that are mottled green and purple, more intensely purple as plants mature.  This variety is relatively rare in India and is highly esteemed.  Drinking tulsi tea in the morning is a fantastic way to help you cope with stress, whether environmental or internal, which may arise during the day.   OM SHANTI OM

A note on indoor germination and cultivation of Tulsi.  Instructions are printed on every packet, but space is limited, so here is some more advice, to help assure your success.  Sow the seeds in good quality potting soil, barely beneath the surface, and tamp well.  Keep evenly moist, very warm and in the light until germination.  Kapoor germinates in about 5 days, while Krishna and Rama can easily take 3 weeks to germinate.  Once they attain their second set of leaves, thin seedlings to 2 inches apart. Keep seedlings warm and in the light, and water when the surface of the soil becomes dry.  Watering too much during early phases will cause damping off, so this must be avoided. Individuate seedlings to their own pots when they reach about 3 inches tall.   Most plants require at least 8 hours of direct sunlight per day for optimal growth, and Tulsi is no exception.  Cool, wet, and shady conditions are not conducive to healthy development. Tulsi grows best in the summer garden or in a greenhouse environment.  Lacking these conditions, a solarium or very bright south facing window may be adequate.  Growing Tulsi during the winter will require grow lights.  You can purchase T-5 growlights online that will work quite well.  Keep the light 18 inches above the top leaf, and keep the light on the plants for at least 8 hours per day.  Keep plants nipped back if they get leggy or go to flower very quickly. It works best to plant 1 plant per gallon pot.  If the plants are potted up with organic compost, then they should have enough nutrients to stay healthy for some time.   If they begin to yellow or look unhealthy, then fertilize once every 2 weeks with compost tea, comfrey leaf tea, dilute fish emulsion or other organic liquid fertilizer, or heap additional organic compost around the stems and water through the compost to feed the plants.  This is a good way to keep some healthy individuals for worship or for ongoing harvest for fresh leaves or for tea.
