Stevia is an ornamental, but controversial, plant. It is a great indoor plant. The tender perennial is a native of Paraguay and has been used for centuries as a non-caloric flavor enhancer. From the aster family, this shrub contains natural compounds called steviosides and rebaudioside A that some claim is 50 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia plants require a well-drained, moist soil. Grows 12" tall.
Harvest the leaves when the flowers start to form. Allowing the flowers to bloom will make the leaves bitter or dirty tasting. Cut the whole plant off at the base and hang the plant upside down in a dark, drafty, dry area for 2 to 4 days. Drying in the oven or dehydrator is not recommended.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
