Stevia is a remarkable plant that is used in many parts of the world as a natural herbal sweetener. Stevia leaves are 30 times sweeter than sugar but contain virtually no calories. Native to South America, it has been used as a sweetener  for at least 1,500 years.

 

Interestingly, in the U.S., due to pressure from the powerful sugar lobby, Stevia is regulated by the FDA and until recently could be offered only as a dietary supplement (or skin care product) but not as a food additive or sweetener.

 

Stevia is a tender, perennial herb that is usually grown as an annual but may be overwintered indoors. Full sun to part shade, grows to a height of about 30 inches.

 

These plants are perfect candidiates for pots (at least one gallon, with adequate drainage). They require full sun. It is best not to place a dish under your pot of Stevia to avoid them becoming waterlogged, as they are prone to root rot and other bacterial diseases.

 

Sold in a 2.5" pot.

    Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

     

    I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

    Zero out of pocket expense.

    91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

    Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call - his name is James Johns (310-756-9487) and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

    Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!

    PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ASK FOR JOHN JAMES AS YOUR SALESPERSON IF YOU CHOSE TO CALL DIRECTLY.
