Growing Conditions

On the left, lush seedlings 8cm high. On the right, struggling seedlings barely showing true leaves, 1cm high.

These seedlings come from the same package of Thai basil seeds (source), planted 6 weeks apart. I gave them the same fluorescent grow light and kept them both watered. I used a different planting medium.

The ones on the right are 6 weeks older.

  1. I have only recently become aware that there is a thing called “Thai basil,” and that it is Thai basil that gives Thai food with basil its distinctive taste. I just thought I was a bad cook.

    1. Haha not at all! I love all the diversity of food types, I didn’t realize how many strains of stuff there were until I started buying seeds!
