I have been trying to grow a Tulsi plant at my place but every time I plant, it survives for a couple of days or maximum a month and suddenly dies.This happens every time when I pulled out a small plant from my apartment's garden and replaced it in a pot at my place.
After facing this problem I assumed that the plant being small might be the reason and I decided a buy a relatively big and healthy plant from market. It went well for a couple of months and suddenly the leaves appeared pale and yellow and ultimately the plant died .
I watered it once in winters and twice in summers along with a handful of natural mixed fertilizer (Jaivic Khad) in every 10 days.
Kindly advice what to do to save my tulsi plants also let me know the right amount of water and sunlight required for a Tulsi plant to grow well.
Another hurdles to maintain plants in my balcony are I can't keep any small plant outside in my balcony as many squirrels keep on visiting and destroy them as soon as they get a chance to do so. surprisingly they don't do this to full size plants. their target is only small plants and they never let them grow. I have no clue over it and I can't even fix a chick as its a rented accommodation.
Thirdly black aunts...... They go inside the pot through the hole for draining of excess water and start staying inside. Gradually they go deeper upwards and reach to the roots of the plant. From here itself the plant starts dying.(I discovered this after a constant observation of their activities in my balcony)
I feel like as if everyone is after my plants. please help and suggest how to solve these problems....
