    Halle, great video! I will definately grow my own stevia next year. Is there a place to order seeds that you recommend? Also, how much liquid stevia = 1 cup sugar? Thanks again!

  2. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Thanks Pat. They don’t recommend that you grow it from seed rather from a cutting…it is very hard to germinate. That being said…I got mine to germinate just fine. In regards to the liquid stevia, I am not sure…I will get back to you on that.

    How long does the liquid stevia stay good in the refrig.? The top of my stevia was growing flowers so I pinched and threw out. Didn’t realize this was good.

  4. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    it is time to harvest your plant then…you want to get it right before it blooms

  5. Aimee DiRienzo says:

    Great Job on the video! You actually make me want to plant something besides my requisite 1 basil plant per year!!! :))

  6. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Yeah Aimee, my job is don :)

  7. Barb Spaulding says:

    Great job! Would you dry your basil the same way and then just keep the leaves whole?

  8. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I would, or you could use a dehydrator…but the sun works fine too…that is how I did mine last year :)

  9. I have tried for three years in a row to grow stevia. I don’t know if I overwater or what. I would love nothing more than a huge bed of stevia, I love it so much. What else can you tell me about growing it? When do you plant it outdoors?  Thanks so much for this video, I absolutely loved it!

      @littlepurplebarn I barely water my stevia, it does better if slightly dry.  I plant mine in the spring and harvest it right before the first frost for the winter.  Have you tried growing it inside yet?

      1. @hallecottis  @littlepurplebarn I do better inside than out. It is when I try to transplant it that I always lose it. Thanks for your reply!

    I just found your site and am very interested in Stevia. I’ve had bariatric surgery and cannot eat any natural sweeteners, with the exception of Stevia. I’d really like to learn how to cook with it. I’ve never used artificial sweeteners and don’t want to start. I haven’t even thought of growing my own Stevia. I’d love and suggestions or resources you make have on getting started with Stevia (cooking & growing.) Thanks for the info and the video. I’ll be back for more.

    Hello I am a first time stevia grower and my plant is still really small even though I planted in spring and it is now mid July! I hope I get at least a small harvest this year. Can I take a cutting from my plan and grow it indoors to replant outside next year? Or is it best to just buy a new plants each year? Is there more care than just light watering for stevia? Unfortunately I am in a harsh climate and have hard clay like soil, so I am trying to combat those as well!

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Yes, you certainly can take a clipping and grow indoors. I also use the leaves to brew with my tea all summer long and then do a full harvest in the fall. It is a pretty hardy plant.
