4 Essential Tips for Growing Herbs Indoors

Herbs are generally quick to grow and easy to maintain. Almost all herb plants are best grown indoors—oregano, thyme, basil, and sage to name a few. If you’re interested in raising your own herbs at home, here are some important reminders to keep in mind.

First off, the sunlight. Herb plants absorb sunlight and convert it into energy through photosynthesis. Most herbs need around 5-6 hours of sun in order to thrive indoors, and this brings us to the second point: location. Be sure to place your herbs in a sunny spot at home so they can get enough natural light for their survival. Putting them by a window that faces east or west is advisable.

The third tip deals with light spectrum. Light varies in energy frequencies. In order to help your herbs regulate their growth, you can use use a blue light since it has the highest frequency.

Finally, the fourth tip is about letting your plants rest. Herbs need a break from growing so you’ll want to allow them some time for respiration. You can do this by simply turning off the lights when your herbs have already received enough light during the day.
