Prior to last Thursday (October 20), I had been using basil twice a day from these plants. From Thursday through Monday (October 24), we had been visiting family. I missed smelling and tasting the basil. Here is an image of the plants taken today:
and an image of the roots:
There is definitely growth. The plants are starting to get a bit too close to the LED. I’m raising the lamp up a bit to add distance from the LED to the upper leaves. Most of the plants have longer leaves than what I am used to seeing from the basils I grow outdoors (same variety). One of the plants shows narrower, elongated leaves that curl a bit. I’m wondering if the curling is due to some type of deficiency. I’m just noting this observation for now. The roots look a bit longer.
I’ll be changing the nutrients tomorrow.
