Tulsi Holy Basil Plants (Green)

Ocimum tenuiflorum
Holy Basil has a long tradition of use in Ayurvedic medicine and is a well-known sacred plant, a respected medicinal herb, of the Indian subcontinent. Green Holy Basil, also known as Rama Tulsi, is a green variety of basil with the same attributes as Red Basil.

As a medicinal herb it is used to prevent colds and flu, and cleanse the respiratory system of infection. The oil is used as an antioxidant, relieving aches and pains. In India, Hindus grow Tulsi as a religious plant in their homes and temples and use its leaves in routine worship.

2 of 5 Fair April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Shirley McConahay from Durham, NC United States  
The first 3 plants were sent to early and we had a sudden freeze - they are barely alive now and I don't know if they will develop.  Others sent later are in good shape.

5 of 5 Redemption April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Lawrence from Hackensack from Hackensack, NJ United States  
Regrettably, I lost my first specimen from shipping damage. GE promptly remedied the situation, and sent a beautiful replacement, with appropriate apologies. Couldn't be happier with the specimen. Rip roaring, vigorous, happy plant (and customer).
