I planted these basil seeds at the beginning of March. They were a bit over crowded the last few days so I've spaced a few out over two batches. I have noticed some of the leaves are starting to get very light bruises towards the ends of the leaves. There are tiny red bugs around so I have sprayed the plants with insecticidal soap (safe for herbs) twice over the last 3 weeks. Have not seen any bugs on the plants or in the soil. Is the plant sick or is this normal?

You need dry time between watering, or the plant will show bruises on the edges. Your basil looks good to me. Here's a photo of a of my basil plants growing indoors in one gallon pots.

NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
