I'm literally going potty for plants these days. Because I love how orchids look in the bathroom! Place your plant on the counter, shower shelf or even on the back of the toilet to jazz up your space. This is exotic elegance. And let's face it, I have so many plants (hello hibiscus and succulent addiction) that I'm running out of places to put them. Besides, there's actually a few really good reasons why the bathroom in particular is a great spot to grow. And here's a few more tips to help you on your way.
Zero calories. Zero carbohydrates. Non-glycemic. An all natural sweetener that is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Meet stevia.The wonderful stevia plant. You buy this sweetener typically in liquid form for a price. Or you can grow your own plants very cheaply. Then crush the leaves to sweeten your teas, coffee, sorbets, yogurts, salad dressings and fruit. Ideal for diabetics and dieters alike, it's not metabolized by the body. You can even substitute some of the sugar (not all) you use for baking. Stevia is a tender perennial herb that prefers USDA growing zones 9-11. But since we grow it here in Buffalo, NY...anything is possible. And it's thriving and happy as shown above. A little goes a long way. Just one plant yields approximately 1/2 pound of dried leaves. And stevia can be grown year-round in indoor pots. So even if you live in a cooler climate, you can do this too. Let's get growing!
