Planting and careStevia plants do best in a rich, loamy soil — the same kind in which common garden-variety plants thrive. Since the feeder roots tend to be quite near the surface, it is a good idea to add compost for extra nutrients if the soil in your area is sandy.Besides being sensitive to cold during their developmental stage, the roots can also be adversely affected by excessive levels of moisture. So take care not to overwater them and to make sure the soil in which they are planted drains easily and isn’t soggy or subject to flooding or puddling.Frequent light watering is recommended during the summer months. Adding a layer of compost or your favorite mulch around each stevia plant will help keep the shallow feeder roots from drying out.Stevia plants respond well to fertilizers with a lower nitrogen content than the fertilizer’s phosphoric acid or potash content. Most organic fertilizers would work well, since they release nitrogen slowly.Stevia Plant care

Stevia Plant uses
Ornamental Use:
The plant is used for ornamental purpose
Medicinal Use:

Stevia herb parts are very low in calories
Parts by parts, its dry leaves possess roughly 40 times more sweetness than sugar
This sweetness quality in stevia is due to several glycoside compounds including stevioside, steviolbioside, rebaudiosides A-E, and dulcoside
Stevioside is a non-carbohydrate glycoside compound
Hence, it lacks the properties that sucrose and other carbohydrates possess
Stevia extracts, like rebaudioside-A, are found to be 300 times sweeter than sugar
Besides, being a near-zero calorie food ingredient, stevia extracts have several unique properties such as long shelf life, high temperature tolerance, non-fermentative
