Meet Herb

In general use, herbs are plants with savory or aromatic properties that are used for flavoring and garnishing food, medicinal purposes, or for fragrances.

Light

 Herbs will need at least 5-6 hours of good, hot sun each day. Those long hours of sunlight force herbs to produce the oils that give them their unique aromas and flavors in the first place. So...the more sun, the better!

   Common Problems Q&A

 Why is my colors fading?

This is likely due to inadequate lighting. If your Hypoestes plant is placed in low light the growth will become leggy and the color will fade. A location that is too bright will also cause colors to fade. Hypoestes plants like plants with bright indirect light.

Why is my plant wilting?

This is generally a sign that your plant is not receiving enough water. Watering your plant should help it perk right up. Maintaining a consistent watering schedule will help keep your plant happy.

Why are my leaves damaged?

Make sure to water you plant from a soil level, If you water from the top the foliage may experience some damage.
