Planting+
Stevia seed requires no previous treatment but a six hour soak in lukewarm water will encourage germination.
Care+
Water extra during dry periods. Sweetleaf flowers with white blooms from July - September, when the days get shorter and as long as it's not too cold. The sweetener is... surprise surprise, located in the leaves. Stand your plant in a sunny spot in water retaining soil.

Allow the plant to grow strong before allowing to flower - postpone the flowering by cutting the first flowers off. When big, and healthy, the stem can grow to 80 cm tall in good conditions.
Specifics+
Sweetleaf (Stevia rebaudiana) is a representative member of the compositae plants, or Asteraceae. Its natural habitat is the marshy ground of the tropical high rain forests of South America. The ancient inhabitants of this region used this plant for many centuries as a sweetener - it is a perennial in tropical climes. In Europe, we grow it mostly as an annual.

Stevia's sweetener is quite unique. Known as steviolglycoside it contains stevioside and rebaudioside A. In its purest form it is 300 times sweeter than sugar. The powder made from the dried leaves is 35 times sweeter than sugar. Best of all, it contains no calories and it perfectly save for our kidneys too (unlike artificial sweeteners that are used in so many things today). The pure type of stevioglyscosides has recently become accepted in Europe and have been given their own E-number: E960.
