I am trying to grow an indoor herb garden. My dill and cilantro are failing miserably! I think I am also harvesting them when they are too young. Help! They are frail and stringy.



Plants grown indoors often suffer the symptoms that you describe. They simply are not getting enough light. Most herbs and vegetables need a minimum of 6 hours of direct outdoor sunlight or 12 hours of florescent light. When using artificial light it must be within a few inches of the plants.
