    Hi Tanfeliz- Glad you like the design!

    Basil is especially demanding of light when grown indoors- up to 12 hours per day so yes, a grow light is in order! Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!

    Hi Inneractchannel- thanks for your question, it's Shirley.
    Remember that this "living spice rack" is planted on all sides of the tomato cage, so make sure to rotate it daily if it's indoors. A grow light will be helpful but you'll have to make sure you give the plants consistent lighting.

    If you want to grow parsley indoors, you may want to do it by itself near a bright window or with help of grow lights.

    Hi, it's Shirley! Thanks! Enjoy our videos.

  • DIGS Channel 4 years ago

    Always! Basil is so amazing.

  • DIGS Channel 4 years ago

    We think it's always a good idea to use a grow light indoors, yes. But Shirley could answer more to this as the expert.

    A really samrt idea for people that has little lot space. Thanks again DIGS^_^

  • Rae Tattenbaum 4 years ago

    What a great idea. I'm absolutely going to make one. But I never have had much luck growing parsley indoors. Do you think I need a grow light (I have large east facing windows)?

    Thanks for watching!

    Lighting, lighting lighting for good indoor basil!

  • Teresa Fawkes 4 years ago

    Well that might be the problem then. I'm thinking about getting supplemental light for some other plants as well, like my pineapple top which is growing like crazy. But yeah I would love to be able to have a thick beautiful basil!
