Care & Harvest

✂️ Pruning: Remove leaves with brown spots if they appear. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod

 

🔎 Plant Health: Spider mites are a common pest, but you can use our prevention and treatment tricks to keep pests at bay! 

 

🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant’s life. Once the crop reaches 8-10 inches, snip the top of the plant, but only the green stem, not any woody sections. Ensure at least 5 inches of the plant remains. Harvest the plants just before they flower for the highest potency. Trimming your thyme often will encourage more fresh growth and more rounded shape.
