    In response to some of your comments herb can be grown indoors using just natural light or the assistance of a grow light depending on your local climate and home design. You are really going to have to try it out to find what works best for you. When it comes to mold issues there is a good likelihood it is occurring because of too much water like Gail mentioned. Like they also said nestling a tray with holes into a solid bottom tray will help reduce mold issues. Mold isn’t 100% preventable because there are mold spores often in the air. You mostly have control over reducing the conditions it needs to grow on your plants. Don’t over water, clean your containers after each use, and adjust the air circulation in your growing area if possible.

    Mark, you might want to grow microgreens instead. They make amazing salads and grow really well in 1020 flats. I put potting soil in a 1020 tray with drain holes and put it into a 1020 solid tray so I can water from underneath and avoid mold and drainage issues.

    I’ve tried growling veggies/herbs indoors in winter twice with just the light of a south facing window and there just wasn’t enough daylight- they sprouted fine but got leggy really quick. My climate is temperate during the day so was able to salvage some. This year I direct sowed outdoors and everything would have been fine but miscalculated direct sun hours & poor things won’t reach maturity:( It’s a process for sure!

    What type of container are you recommending to use for your indoor garden? I’ve grown indoor salad greens in a 6” deep container approximately 1’ x 2 ‘ with a solid bottom. I eventually had mold problems due to drainage issues.

    Growing herbs inside…. do you mean with lights or just on a window sill?
