Q.Want Bushier Basil Plant

Silentstar added on October 29, 2021 | Answered

I have a Basil plant that’s very tall. If he keeps growing higher he will outgrow his lamp. How can I get my basil plant to grow bushier, not taller?

Constant pruning will be necessary. I prune mine every couple of weeks. Mine is mostly ornamental, at this point, though. Once it has grown into a small shrub, it tends to stay a little bitter.
