I recently picked up a couple small pots of lavender and rosemary for my apartment. I do not have access to direct sunlight. So I’ve been using red and blue led lamps. Their the size of a small desk lamp.
I noticed the lavenders seem paler and the flower buds and stems have gone limp and starting to tilt downward. I guess thats a sign the plant is not doing well?
Are my plants getting to much light? Not enough light? Do I need different lighting? Higher wattage?
I ordered some fertilizer but its my understanding herbs don’t do well with fertilizer.

Thanks. I gave them a little water this morning.

When I got them from the local green house at Home Depot the pots had just been watered so I havn’t bothered watering them til this morning.

Your only suppose to water them every few days right? I thought light is the most important with these types of plants.

I think Becky was trying to find out the source of your water. Are you on a central water system (city water) that possibly used chlorine and fluoride? Do you have a well and use a water softener? Both situations can present bad conditions for plants.
