Stevia Flowering

I've heard a lot about Stevia dying off right after it finishes flowering. A couple of days ago my Stevia flowered, and it still looks good so far. I wanted to let it flower but keep it alive. Does anyone have any ideas? Would fertilizing it give it enough nutrition to keep it alive?

RE: Stevia Flowering

Simply get out your secateurs and give the plant an all-over haircut to remove the flowers. Flowers will persist for a while, but remove them as they appear. Don't fertilise it, or it will produce even more flowers.
