Mist more frequently to keep the coating moist. Grows very well hydroponically and does better in well-lit conditions, but it is a slower grower. You may experiment with harvest times past 10 days. Genovese basil is a beautiful green color with an interesting shape that makes for a colorful garnish. Micro basil does not grow tall, so you will need to harvest close to the root line and rinse well. Micro basil seeds are among the more expensive seeds, but are worth it for their intense basil flavor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums.

    Growing Directions:

    Genovese Basil is a mucilaginous seed, meaning that it develops a jelly-like coating when it gets wet. Mist more frequently to keep the coating moist. Grows very well hydroponically and does better in well-lit conditions, but it is a slower grower. You may experiment with harvest times past 10 days. Genovese basil is a beautiful green color with an interesting shape that makes for a colorful garnish. Micro basil does not grow tall, so you will need to harvest close to the root line and rinse well. Micro basil seeds are among the more expensive seeds, but are worth it for their intense basil flavor.

    ***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums. Results may vary.

    For more detailed instructions on growing, as well as some troubleshooting and tips, please visit our Soil Growing Directions page or our Hydroponic Growing Directions page
