Hydroponic Basil

Basil grows great in hydroponic systems! The main thing to keep in mind, is that once a leaf goes bad, the best thing to do is to clip it. Once a leaf goes bad, it could impact your other plants causing them to go bad as well.

Aerogarden

Basil is a super popular herb to grow in Aerogarden systems. Since it is an herb it can grow in any of the Aerogarden units, including the sprout! Just remember to prune EARLY and OFTEN on the top to make it bush out so it doesn’t grow tall and lanky.

I love the look of the White Harvest Slim and currently have basil in there. Not to mention Kratky jars everywhere.

Aeroponic Basil

The care instructions for Aeroponics basil is the same as hydroponic.

Indoor Basil

Indoor Basil is so much fun! You can grow them inside with  using Aeroponics or Hydroponics. If basil is something you use often, get yourself a small system like an Aerogarden Sprout and put it on your counter! It will look so cute sitting there, living your kitchen smelling good all the time.

Pruning

Be sure to prune your basil that are top heavy. If the plant gets too heavy, you could risk the main root becoming bitter and snapping causing your basil to go bad.

Pest Control

The great thing about growing inside is that you have to worry way less about pests getting into your basil. A few to look out while growing basil is aphids, nematodes, aphids, flea beetles, white flies, slugs, and even snails.

just like growing any plants, you have to be careful and know what to look for when growing basil. A few include damping off, leaf spot diseases, root rot, downy mildew, and fusarium wit.
