Winter in North America can get harsh. During this time, Tulasi devi needs more attention. Today it was snowing outside, but inside the Tulasi room it was a balmy 82 degrees, and humid. This is how she can live through the cold winter.
This Tulasi came to us pretty malnourished and sick. I nursed her back to health by giving sufficient light, a warm and humid room, and great organic nutrients. The nutrients I use have to be added with every watering, which in the winter is only once every 10 days or so. Find it here
Also, by the advice of a friend, she is sitting on a seedling heating pad. The reason is to keep the roots 10 or 20 degrees higher than the ambient air temperature. I can tell its working because shes growing pretty quick now. You can find that here
She's even growing manjari now. In the winter!
