What are the pros? high germination rate
What are the cons? Needs warmth and protection
Different dishes in Thailand require different types of basil, and spicy stir-fry dishes use holy basil (kaprao) which is very distinctive.
We live in a cooler Northern California climate. I planted these seeds in a large patio pot. The first two times I planted the seeds they germinated and then the tiny plants disappeared when they were a few millimeters high. Perhaps it was too cold or some bug was getting them. The third time, I put one of those plant cloth blankets (that lets light in) over the pot which warmed things up and protected them. I took it off when the plants were a few inches high. Had a great harvest for several months. Seems like every seed germinated. I highly recommend and will be growing them again this year.
