- Sunlight. When growing basil indoors, lighting is important. Basil growing indoors requires at least six hours of sunlight.
- Location. Basil plants should be placed in a sunny window, preferably facing south.
- Watering. While the soil should be kept somewhat moist, it should never be soggy; otherwise, the roots will be prone to rotting.
- Growing in Containers. The vigorous growth of plants may require frequent repotting. Container grown basil should be planted in well-drained, nutrient-rich soil. Using the proper soil type is important in order to successfully grow basil inside. As basil is not tolerant of water stress, make sure pots provide adequate drainage.
- Fertilising. Basil growing indoors will require fertilizing. Depending on the variety grown and its overall purpose, a general houseplant fertilizer can be used. As with many houseplant fertilizers, this should be used at half the recommended strength.
