    Hi,

    I am very new to gardening and started an indoor herb garden (because it's 117 degree outside o_O) I'm currently growing basil, chamomile, oregano, chives, cilantro, and parsley. I have all of the plants in a window where they get eastern sun all morning. They are growing great, but I have noticed that, especially on my basil leaves, there are white patches on the leaves with little tiny black dots on them. This is spreading to all of the other plants now.

    Does anyone know what this could be caused by and how to treat it??

    Thank you so much! basil leave.jpg

    I think a sucking insect like Leafhopper is your problem. Those black dots look like an excrement of insects.
