Yerba Mate
    #1460396 - 04/15/03 03:05 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I can get some live yerba mate. Would it be worth growing for consumption?
Do you think it would be wise to just buy it dried? When I have a few extra bucks I will buy it any way.

i used to have a small mate tree but someone killed it in my garden thinking it was just a bad weed or something... it is pretty easy to take care of and turns into a bush. (not really good to grow indoors).
if it's worth or not growing it, depends on how you like it, the room you have for it and the avaliability of dried leaves where you ilve. if you can buy a kilo for a little money then you probably shouldn't have to bother to have one...
now if you like to grow plants in general, and if you have plenty of room (outdoors, please), why not give it a try? should be very rewarding to take the mate you have grown yourself...

Do you live somewhere really warm?

I just read a post you made about a yopo tree near you (didn't I?) and yerba now.

These things can't grow in the midsouth U.S.A. can they?

how cold does it get in the winter. Last winter here the grond froze once about 6 inches deep for about 3 days, and 15'-20'F nights are common.

I have tried it, and I do like it. I dont have room indoors but i have all the room I need at my momies. She lets me keep all my projects over at her place. She is the best. I know it likes it in the tropics so im not sure how it will do up here. Well there is only one way to find out right.
