Stevia. Sweet tasting leaf. Substitute for sugar as a sweetener. Use sparingly as the tiniest piece is very sweet. #stevia

@buzzygems Stevia likes full sun. Although with the fierce sun here in Qld, most plants appreciate some shade. Will drop its leaves in autumn. Fertile, well drained soil. Keep moist. As yet, not tried growing from seed, which I believe is not easy. Good luck.

@buzzygems Start your seedlings in warm, shady area to harden. Gradually move to more direct light and sun as the seedling grows. If it wants more light, it will lean towards the light.
