This time it will be our king of herbs - Basil!
Pinching: Cut the plant after it has reached a height of 15-20 centimeters (6-7 inches) to preserve the herb's great taste and to make it grow bushier. Use scissors to shorten the tips to avoid unnecessary damage to the plant.
Extend: If you allow your basil to grow as high as the lamp and decide not to cut it, then add extensions to raise the lamp. This prevents the plant from getting burned.
Lifetime: After 12 weeks, consider replacing the pod or
re-potting the plant.
In cookery, you can use basil in many ways: as pizza or sandwich toppings, to add flavor to your pasta, to make pesto and so on.
