Lighting: Herbs will need at least 5-6 hours of good, hot sun each day. Those long hours of sunlight force herbs to produce the oils that give them their unique aromas and flavors in the first place. So...the more sun, the better!
Water: Keep the soil moist but not damp. Always water in the morning or the early part of the day, never at night.
Temperature: Place pots in a south-facing window where the temperature stays between 60-75° F.
