Plant Care Instructions


  1. Sunlight: Long Tulsi thrives in bright, direct sunlight. Ensure it receives at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels dry.

  3. Soil: Use well-draining soil rich in organic matter. A mix of garden soil and compost works well.

  4. Temperature: Tulsi prefers warm temperatures between 70-90°F (21-32°C). Protect it from frost and cold drafts.

  5. Fertilizing: Feed the plant with a balanced, organic fertilizer once a month during the growing season.

  6. Pruning: Regular pruning encourages bushier growth. Pinch off the flowers to extend the productive life of the plant.
