I'm new here and seeking some advice on how to save my basil plant. I started this plant from a cutting, which was actually condiment from a vietnamese pho restaurant.
I planted it outdoors in the spring along with some thai basil that I picked up form the nursery. Although my internet research tells me that the basil that comes with pho is indeed thai basil, the plant I got from the nursery just wasn't the same. But I digress. Both plants were started in the spring, but while the store-bought plant grew quite prolifically, the basil from the cutting didn't seem to budge. I thought it would surely die, but it seemed to hold up albeit being exactly the same size as when it was potted.
I recently brought it inside to brave the winter and decided to feed it with an all purpose plant food. They day after, the leaves started to curl upwards as you can see in this photo [img]https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/2BYw-ZvMHhgoRrWG_-g1lA?feat=directlink[/img]. There are also some brown spots that appeared before I brought it inside.
It's sitting in front of a south-facing window and I water it only when the soil gets dry on top. I'm sure I mixed the plant food correctly, so I'm not sure why the leaves have decided to curl up all of a sudden. Any ideas why? Advice?
Also, the plant is in pretty bad shape in general and never seems to grow. Thoughts?
