Growing Herbs indoors - Knowledgebase Question

I have been trying for years to grow herbs indoors. Great success outdoors but plants seem to develop bugs when grown indoors. Is there something special that needs to be done to grow them indoors?

Funny - most gardeners have the exact opposite problem - bugs on plants outdoors but not indoors! I'd start the herbs from seeds, in fresh potting soil to eliminate having bugs attack the plants. Fresh potting soil, clean containers and fresh seeds should do the trick. Best wishes with your herbs!
