I'm glad you all are finding the info useful! Thumbs up

Patchouli is actually a member of the mint family...it originates in hot, humid, areas...75 to 80 degrees always so you might need to buy it a heat lamp Big Grin . Indirect sunlight for a minimum of 8 hours a day. Keep the soil moist at all times....if it's dry down to your first knuckle give it a drink.

Good luck with it, you're braver than I am!!
