Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin)
This listing is for 50+ Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) SEEDS grown in our Haiku, Maui garden.
(We also offer a listing variation for 50+ SEEDS + one small bag of dried Patchouli LEAF. The dried Patchouli Leaf option will arrive in a 3x4" plastic baggie).
PATCHOULI SEEDS CAN TAKE 3+ WEEKS TO GERMINATE. Please be patient when you grow from a seed.
After germination, Patchouli is a very fast growing plant (a member of the Mint family).
Start your seeds in containers of good potting soil. These are tiny seeds and can be pressed or lightly watered into the potting soil surface. Keep evenly watered and warm at all times.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT SOME CHAFF/DRIED LEAF IS IN THE SEED PACKET AS WELL AS THE 50+ SEEDS. PATCHOULI SEEDS ARE VERY TINY, THE SIZE OF A SMALL 'FLEA'. PLANT THE SEEDS + CHAFF ALL TOGETHER AND KEEP WARM/75-85 DEGREES + EVENLY WATERED. WAIT AT LEAST THREE (3) WEEKS TO SEE THE START OF TINY SEEDLINGS.
Patchouli leaves are known for their very distinct 'earthy' aromatic scent. Some people love the earthy scent of Patchouli and some others do not.
(You may enjoy the scent of Patchouli even more when it is paired with another scent. Please also see Tamara's handmade 'Maui Patchouli Orange Soap'. Our dried Patchouli leaves are added to this vegan, cold process Patchouli + Orange essential oil soap).
