When rooting a basil clipping in a jar of water, does it root better in a dark environment or in the sunlight? I thought roots didn't like the light.

If you put a clear glass container in the sun, it is possible that the water can get too warm for the roots. Since root systems are underground, I would suggest an opaque or colored container. Basil, and most any other herb, needs as much sun as possible when grown indoors.
