How To Grow BasilGraphic © off-grid.info. Photo © Adobe Stock (under license)
In this video, the presenter CaliKim teaches us how to create an “endless” supply of fresh basil! It turns out that it is super easy – and nothing beats having fresh basil herbs “on tap” for culinary uses. 🙂
Trimming the basil plant back helps encourage the existing plant to become more bushy. Next, the basil stems that were cut are put into jars of water – where they are left for a couple of weeks.
After a couple of weeks in water, the basil stems will have started sprouting some serious roots – at which point they can be transferred to their own pots and grown up as new plants!
Note that the water in the jars should be changed out every day or two, so that it doesn’t become stagnant.
This is a method of “plant cloning” that – for those interested in the science behind it – generates new plants that have the same genetic material as the existing “mother” plant, mimicking its qualities; as opposed to growing plants from seeds, which typically results in a slight variation as the plant develops from genetic material from more than one plant of the same species.
Ok, here’s the video:
