A particularly low-maintenance cultivar of Indian basil is Tulsi Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum). An annual that thrives in heat, grows up to 3 feet tall, prefers full sun, but will also grow in light shade.
"Holy basil is a plant that is indigenous to South and Southeast Asia. It has significant cultural and religious importance. This herb is revered by Hindus despite being most commonly known in other areas of the world as a flavoring for Thai food. This plant is delicious, fragrant, and medicinal, and you can grow it in your own garden.
For the goal of purifying visitors, holy basil has traditionally been grown in pots near and around temples in India. With a long history of usage in Ayurvedic medicine, holy basil plants are also significant."
Some of the photos are for visual purposes only. They are of my personal plants. The seedlings will be 2-4 inches tall with a healthy root system!
