How to grow Stevia?
I picked up two small Stevia plant from the local farmer. When I was at the market, he pinched a small leave and let me tasted it. It's sweet and I was excited, that's why I picked up two because he said it's hard to find.
Anyway, I have them in the pot now and they seems to be doing fine. I was looking for planting information, a search in Gooogle brought me to Wikipedia, talks about all bunch of chemical structure vs sugar etc. Turns out it was ban by FDA in 90s and now is coming back. It's originated from Brazil and is up to 300 times sweeter than Sugar.
I like to keep this plant as long as posible. Anyone know if it will survive in Zone5? Also, take full sun? Growing height/spread information. Some uses information would be good. All I know is you can bruce the leave and put into tea, I like to see how I can use it in dessert.
