At a temperature of 20-25 degrees sprout in 2-4 weeks, after six months it can also be trimmed.
In summer it is appropriate to take tea in the garden or outside on the balcony. A hot summer and heavy watering will create conditions similar to those they are accustomed to in their country of origin. However, the tea plant does not like sunny sites too, preferring bright locations, but in places where the sun is not present during the hottest hours of the day. In the winter you should put the other hand, by the window. The plant can be done all year, being evergreen, but in any case, it is preferable to the end of the cold season, when they were shot. If you have a garden, however, the system provides details of the operations that you can learn here.
