Grow Basil Indoors
August 24, 2018
Basil is one of the easier herbs to grow, as long as temperatures are on the warm side. Plants should never be exposed to temperatures below 40 F. Basil needs bright light indoors, with direct full-sun exposure for 6 to 8 hours outdoors. Choose cool-spectrum HO T5, CFL, LED, MH/CMH grow lamps.
Basil does not require a lot of space and grows easily in containers. Some varieties are very compact, reaching only 8 inches tall, while others can get much larger. If you have limited space, choose dwarf cultivars.
