Water Stevia Plants Well

While Stevia plants are a children of the sun, they do need their water!  Dessicated, dried plants can occur in just one day if they are not provided the water they need.  Grown in containers on the deck, Stevia plants are at high risk for drying up.  

Use a rain guage to be sure Stevia plants in the garden get at least one inch of rain per week. 

Use a plant water meter, available for just 10 dollars or less to test the moisture in the soil of the pot.

Keep 'em watered and the Stevia Plant will grow for you!
