9 Herb Plants to Grow in Water

Rosemary

Originating from the Mediterranean, rosemary thrives indoors with good drainage and plenty of natural light. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.

Mint

Easy to grow indoors, mint prefers indirect sunlight and moist soil. It doesn't need as much light as rosemary and should be kept consistently moist.

Thyme

A hearty herb that loves direct sunlight and ample watering. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.

Parsley

Thrives alongside thyme with a preference for direct sunlight and similar watering requirements. Harvest by pinching off leaves as needed.

Chives

These easy-to-grow herbs enjoy direct sunlight for about six hours a day. Water when the soil feels dry to the touch.

Lemongrass

Ideal for beginners, lemongrass grows well in pots with good drainage and requires ample space to grow. Harvest frequently to encourage growth.

Basil

Place basil in a sunny window next to chives and water when the soil feels dry. In a few weeks, you'll have plenty of basil for various dishes.

Oregano

Perfect for indoor planting alongside thyme, oregano prefers a sunny window and soil that dries out between waterings.

Sage

Thrives in sunlight and can tolerate drought. Water when the soil is dry, and use it in fall dishes or whenever you need a flavor boost.
