Sugar Plant

I purchased a sugar plant. It can be used to sweeten coffee, tea, lemonade, etc. What can you tell me about growing the sugar plant.

I presume you are writing about the stevia plant and not the sugar beet? Stevia likes sun and warmth and has t be over-wintered indoors in a cool place if you do not live in a tropical climate. It likes good drainage and a fertile soil.
