Indoor Herb Planters

I would like to plant Rosemary, Basil, Parsley, Cilantro and Thyme in two indoor planters. Which of the plants I mentioned are more compatible and likely to do well sharing a planter? Thanks.

The main consideration is that you want to plant herbs that enjoy similar conditions together. Rosemary and thyme both prefer well-drained, realtively sandy soil and a lower amount of water, so you can plant those together. Basil, parsley, and cilantro prefer more moisture- they still need well-drained soil, but with a lower percentage of sand and more organic matter, and you'll likely need to water them more often.
