I was tired of having the fresh basil grow black very quickly sitting in my fridge, so I thought I'd try this live basil plant I got from Whole Foods. Just $4! I just need to keep it in direct sunlight, which may be a problem, given that I really only get a little morning light, the other light is indirect, how my condo is situated. The leaves seem to be very tiny. It'll be interesting how long it lasts, and especially how it tastes! It definitely smells like basil!
