How to Maintain Tulsi Plant at Home?

The Tulsi plant is delicate and requires extreme care. So, here are some things you must be wary of to ensure yours doesn’t wilt.

  1. Watering: In the summer season, water the plant every day. In winter, skip daily watering and give water to the Tulsi plant on every alternate day. This will prevent overwatering.

  2. Sunlight: The Tulsi plant requires plenty of sunlight. So, either plant it outside in your garden or, if planting indoors, keep it near a window that receives maximum sunbeams and keep it there to ensure it receives at least six to eight hours of daylight.

  3. Soil Care: Like any plant, it’s essential to sow holy Tulsi in nutrient-rich soil. So, add organic fertilizers to the soil mix. Also, once the plant has grown in size, put it in a bigger pot and make sure to spray organic pesticides every once in a while to keep pests at bay.

Can We Keep A Tulsi Plant Inside the House?

Yes, you can absolutely keep the Tulsi plant inside your house. According to Vastu, planting Tulsi indoors brings positivity and prosperity to the household. However, you must make sure that the plant receives ample sunlight. Otherwise, it can die easily, and that’s considered highly inauspicious.
