Scientific Name: 

Ocimum basilicum var. thyrsiflora

Description:

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.

Ø15cm x H11cm

Overall Plant Height:

25-30cm (Approx.) Included grower pot

Light:

Full sun, partial sun, bright light.

Water:

Check regularly and water as needed.

Water thoroughly when the soil turns slightly dry to touch.

Never let the soil dry out completely.

Fertilizer:

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

Trimming:

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.
