Growing tips for Tulsi

  1. Tulsi prefers a warm and humid climate, so it is best to grow it in a warm and sheltered spot.
  2. It grows well in well-draining, loamy soil that is rich in organic matter.
  3. Sow the seeds directly in the soil or in seed trays, covering them lightly with soil.
  4. Water regularly, but be careful not to overwater, as the plant can be susceptible to root rot.
  5. Fertilize with a balanced, organic fertilizer every 3-4 weeks to encourage growth.
  6. Tulsi grows well in full sun to partial shade, so choose a spot that gets at least 4-6 hours of sunlight a day.
  7. Pinch off the tips of the plant regularly to encourage bushier growth and prevent it from becoming too leggy.
  8. Harvest the leaves as needed, starting from the top of the plant and working your way down.

How to Grow Holy Basil from Seeds

How to Sow Tulsi Seeds aka Holy Basil Seeds:

  • Plant seeds directly in well-worked, moist soil free of debris, or start them in seedling trays using high-quality seed starting soil.
  • Cover seeds with a thin layer of finely sifted soil. Ensure seeds are barely covered as light aids in germination.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist until seeds germinate, typically within 5-10 days.

Transplanting:

  • Once seedlings reach 4-5 inches tall, transplant them to grow bags, ensuring they are spaced at least 4 inches apart.
  • If direct sowing, thin the plants to allow proper spacing and growth.
  1. Growth Care:
  • Provide full sun for at least 6 hours daily.
  • Water regularly, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged.
  • Fertilize with an organic liquid fertilizer once seedlings have their first set of true leaves.

Harvesting Holy Basil

  • Timing: Harvest leaves when plants are in bloom, typically 50-60 days after planting.
  • Method: Cut foliage down to two inches above the ground. The plant will regrow and can be harvested again during warm months.

Common Problems and Solutions

  • Diseases:
  • Damping-Off: Prevent by avoiding overwatering and ensuring proper drainage.
  • Root Rot: Caused by overwatering; allow soil to dry out between watering.
  • Leaf Spot Disease: Prune infected leaves and water at the base of the plant.
  • Downy Mildew: Ensure good air circulation and dry foliage. Remove infected parts.
