Great plant. Too bad I never use it, and after deep freezes it comes right back up again. From hearsay it seems that the seeds are viable only for 30 days, but I've not tested that rumor.

i heard that after letting it flower, the plant will just die down to the roots, i dont plan on testing that rumor

I have a stevia plant that flowered after I brought it in for the winter. It didn't die back, but I drastically cut it back because it got real leggy in the windpow. It is coming back nicely, and after taking a look at it this morning, it has flowered again!
