Notes

I acquired this little lovely plant from a local shop. As of 10/10/2017, the plant is doing very well and I am going to transfer it to a larger pot in the next week.

There are something you should know when growing rosemary in tropical climate (actually the weather here is not too hot as Nha Trang is a seaside city and I believe the climate here is somewhat similar to Mediterranean):

  • Everyone know that rosemary love plenty of sun and little to no water. But in full sun (I placed it in a 12-sunny-hours-a-day spot), it will need a lot of water, maybe about over 0.5 liter a day. For once time I forgot to water it 1 day and its comfortable aroma was gone.

  • I believe its essence oil will be of best quality when you plant it in full sun. I compared the aroma of the leaves I have here with those from Dalat and what I got is much richer in flavor and scent.

I will update the status and tips to grow rosemary as often as I can.
