In Islamabad, all recognized by the name Stevia, although few also called it Sugar plant.

Salam to all friends: I m new in this forum,I m Phytochemist but love Botany as well. We have grown this plant (stevia) through tissue culture in research labs (PCSIR Labs Complex Peshawar).This plant is regenerated through stem cutting, seeds and tissue culture. Best method of its cultivation is through stem cuttings. Seed cultivation is very rare and chances is about 1% or less. Stevia or its extract can be also obtained from Medicinal Botanic Centre PCSIR Labs Complex Peshawar. We have prepared several products from its extract.

Bought a plant of Stevia from Lahore, made several cuttings, three rooted well in 15 days and they are shifted to ground, planning to take as many cuttings as possible and make complete bed for Stevia:

Cuttings which were taken yesterday and some 15 day old cuttings which are not rooted yet:
