    So excited to see how this grows in my garden! I received the plant within 2 days of shipping (I live in Springfield, TN) and was impressed with how well it was packaged – nestled safely inside the box! I have it in my window for now and look forward to transplanting it into a larger pot at a later date. This is the first time I’ve bought a live plant from Strictly Medicinal Seeds (I’ve only previously bought seeds from this wonderful company) and will definitely consider buying more live plants in the near future!

      Yes, I’ve had them inside before. They tend to get leggy but they do OK. r
