Botanical Name: Ocimum Tenuiflorum

Also Known as:

  • Ocimum Sanctum
  • Tulasi

Tulsi, is an aromatic perennial plant.

It is native to the Indian subcontinent and widespread as a cultivated plant throughout the Southeast Asian tropics. Traditionally Tulsi was cultivated for religious and traditional medicine purposes, essential oil and herbal tea. Lately there has been several studies and various amounts of research done to find out the therapeutic effects of this super herb.

Holy Basil/Tulsi grows well in loamy and fertile soil with good drainage, pH level around 6 to 7.5 is optimal.

Holy Basil thrives in full sun but grows in partial shade too, at least four hours of sunlight a day is required.

Water the plant when top one inch of soil is dry. Do not water during rain. Reduce watering by the winter to prevent diseases.

It is important to pinch tops of Holy Basil/Tulsi plant when they are forming four or six pairs of leaves, this will make the plant grow bushier. Even the flower buds need to be removed when they appear. It grows more lush and full when seed production is prevented.

It is also important to remove the faded, wilted or discolored leaves to encourage the growth of new foliage. Regular removal of old leaves and flower buds keep the plant healthy.

Apply balanced liquid fertilizer once in every couple of weeks. Replacing top two inch layer of soil with compost every year or in six months is also beneficial.

Prune Holy Basil/Tulsi as needed throughout the year to control its size and promote bushier and more compact growth. Remove no more than half of the growth of stem while pruning.

Move Holy Basil/Tulsi plant indoors in the winter if you live below USDA zone 10, place the plant near a bright sunny window, where the temperature is kept above 50 F (10 C). Move the plant again outside after all the dangers of frost are passed.

Grow your own herb garden conveniently in your kitchen window, windowsill, balcony or patio. Grow your own herbs and enjoy the benefits of having your freshly grown herbs at your fingertips.
