Does anyone have tips on germinating and growing Stevia?
Some say it is difficult and others say it is easy?
Warm and under lights?

Easy - at least has been for me.
Started some about a month ago in my basement under lights. Used H2O2 solution to moisten seed starter media. That is what I use now most all the time. My plants are ~ 1 " tall.

Oh Encouraging!
Going to start some today!
I always water with dilute hydrogen peroxide.

I've not had great luck with stevia. I think one of the keys is to have really fresh seed. Good luck, Carolyn--keep us posted.
