Fact Sheet and Plant Guide

Scientific Name: 

Ocimum basilicum var. thyrsiflora


Thai basil has narrow leaves, purple stems, and pink-purple flowers.

It is a tender perennial, but is typically grown as an annual.

The flowers should be pinched to prevent the leaves from becoming bitter.

Thai basil can be repeatedly harvested by taking a few leaves at a time and should be harvested periodically to encourage regrowth.

Pot dimension:  

Ø15cm x H11cm

Overall Plant Height:

25-30cm (Approx.) Included grower pot


Full sun, partial sun, bright light.


Check regularly and water as needed.

Water thoroughly when the soil turns slightly dry to touch.

Never let the soil dry out completely.


Fertilize with all-purpose organic fertilizer once a month to encourage growth.


Gently trim away dry, brown, or yellowish leaves by using a pair of secateurs.

Trimming allows available nutrients in the soil to be transferred into the new leaves which encourage intentional growth.

Also, trimming allows your plants to retain in a good shape and keep pests, fungal and diseases away.
