GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Basil, also called great basil, is a culinary herb of the family Lamiaceae.
  • Basil is native to tropical regions from central Africa to Southeast Asia.
  • Cinnamon Basil, also known as Mexican basil is native to the world’s tropical and subtropical climates.
  • Cinnamon basil plants thrive when temperatures are in the 80’s and ’90s (27-32 C. or more.).
  • This basil plant displays dark green leaves and cinnamon-colored stems.
  • Cinnamon basil plants contain cinnamite, a compound that gives the herb an intense, spicy aroma and cinnamon-like flavor.
  • Cinnamon basil is sometimes used medicinally and is said to be good for maladies such as constipation, headaches, cough, and diarrhea.
  • It contains vitamins A and C and provides a generous amount of vitamin K.
  • The spicy herb is appreciated by chefs too, who use it as an attractive garnish or to flavor hot drinks or other dishes.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Basil does its best in well-drained, moist soil with a neutral pH.
  • In fact, if the soil is too rich, basil loses some of its flavor intensity.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize once every four to six weeks for indoor plants and every two to three weeks for basil grown outdoor.
  • Use a water-soluble fertilizer mixed at half strength.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Basil grows best with at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day.
  • With proper sunlight, your plant will be big and beautiful for several months of the year.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water regularly – basil likes to stay moist and requires approximately 1 inch of water every week.
  • Water deeply at least once a week to keep roots growing deep and the soil moist.
