Herbal Nightmare

My lemon basil, sweet basil, oregano (and kangkong) in the haus

My lemon basil, sweet basil, oregano (and kangkong) in the haus

Worms were crawling on my basil plants!  WAAAAAAAAH!!!!!

Good thing it was just a dream.  But it got me more worried.  You see, I bought lemon basil and sweet basil two weeks ago.  I asked the seller some pointers on taking care of them.  I even asked if they need some special soil.  When I transferred them into a pot, I just added soil from my father’s backyard.  I wasn’t confident about it so I googled a bit.  Turned out they ‘don’t like their feet wet.’  They, basil and other herbs, are sun worshipers and want well-draining soil.  The soil I added in the pot were not exactly well-draining.  😦

So I was worried.  So worried I even dreamed about them.  When rains started pouring the past days, I placed them in the house.  Now my problem is my lemon basil is dying.  But maybe she just needs some sunshine?

Mr. Sun, show up PLEASE!!!!
