Plant Care Instructions

To ensure that your Kapur Tulsi thrives and continues to provide its medicinal benefits, follow these comprehensive care guidelines:

  1. Sunlight: Kapur Tulsi requires plenty of sunlight to grow robustly. Place the plant in a location that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day. If growing indoors, a sunny windowsill or a spot with ample natural light is ideal.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. During hotter months, you might need to water more frequently, ensuring the plant doesn’t dry out.

  3. Soil: Plant Kapur Tulsi in well-draining, fertile soil enriched with organic matter. A mixture of garden soil, compost, and sand in equal parts creates an optimal growing medium. Good drainage prevents root rot and other water-related issues.

  4. Fertilization: Feed your Kapur Tulsi plant with a balanced, organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. This ensures the plant gets the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and maximum medicinal potency.

  5. Pruning: Regular pruning encourages bushier growth and prevents the plant from becoming leggy. Trim the top leaves and stems to promote new shoots. Removing flowers as they appear can also help in maintaining the plant’s vigor.

  6. Pest Control: Kapur Tulsi is relatively pest-resistant, but it’s essential to keep an eye out for common pests like aphids and spider mites. Use organic pest control methods like neem oil spray to keep your plant healthy.
