Our Tulsi Plant An Update

I had written here about planting our Tulsi Plant.  After several repeated efforts to keep it alive, it has not survived.

We’ve tried keeping it at different locations, observing various ritualistic rules, changing the soil mixture but to no avail. I had thought that getting the Tulsi plant right would be the first step towards building a home garden in our balcony but the plans are suspended for now as we try and figure out how to plant and grow the Tulsi.
