Just bought a sleeve of hydroponically grown basil. Is there some way that I can keep it producing?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
If you soak a basil stem in water, it will start to produce roots. Then you can plant that root into soil and the basil will continue to grow!
Thank you, Nozlee - I will give it a try!

It doesn't always work, but often enough, as Nozlee said, field-grown basil will take root in a glass of water and last far longer than it otherwise would. Cut off some from the bottom, stick it in water, and wait. Your hydroponic basil should already have roots, so you're ahead of the game.
Greenstuff, thanks for the information. My basil does have roots so I'm good to go!
