I started this herbs from seeds about 3 months ago. Then I transferred them to bigger containers, I was careful to have a right amount of space between them. However, almost 2 months later I don't see a lot of grow. Am I doing something wrong?
Also will will each herb spread out? Meaning will the fill out the containers..

I am seeing parsley, and peppers? Or basil?
Transplanting stalls the tops while the plant builds it's roots. Parsley has a root like a carrot and both it and basil have those long taproots and need a deep pot for the roots. The plants do not look bad, do not overwater, I know humidity is high in Fl, but it isn't watering the root. Try deep watering every 4th day

I think they're getting way too little sun, they're leaning to one side to try and get more light. These need full south facing sun with a moist medium.

Perhaps if you don't have access to more sun, you can rotate the containers on a regular basis to keep them from leaning. They may still be reaching for light though.

I will agree with Kittriana. When you potted them up, the roots need to catch up to the size of the container. Once they are established, they will catch up. Looking good.

A first year parsley that sprouted and has grown since I didn't pull it. Parsley is a 2 yr plant by the way.

This parsley is a second year plant, mostly not as edible as leaves on a first year plant, but I caught my leaf before it began to bloom.

This is the root of an Italian Flat leaf parsley, year 2. My parsley grow year round.

Basils are all different in flavor, tastes, and conditions. The front basil is a sweet basil and hasn't been happy with the rain, it was doing fine while weather was dry. The basil in the left rear is a miniature spicy globe basil that also went downhill with the rains

This basil is African Blue basil which loves heat and humidity and bees. It is edible because it has 'basilicum' in its name, but makes no seeds because it is a hybrid.
