Biophilic design is more popular than ever and for a good reason. Not only an indoor herb garden looks attractive as home decor, adding dimension to space and making the atmosphere more vivid - it's also the best natural air-purifying system around.

Most herbs need as much natural light as possible in order to thrive indoors. Unless specified differently, the best placement is a sunny spot near a window, ideally facing faces south to receive plenty of sunlight.
Poor growth, oversized stems, leaves too small, pale or yellowish are certain signs that the plant needs more light.
A grow light is an excellent way to supplement daylight in the winter.
