I Have two pots of basil that I potted at the same time. They've been in the same area, sun exposure and they're being watered at the same time. The one plant is completely fine. The other one cas tiny dark spots on the leaves. I couldn't find anything that looked the same in my search. Hopefully someone here can help me identify what's wrong. This is the first time I am growing basil so any advice is welcome.

Those are spots due to excess water or over watering a tiny bit. A plant pushes water through to the edge of its leaves, and if given in excess, this can cause veins at the edges to burst, which leads to browning. Allow more time between watering or use less when you water.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

That actually makes perfect sense! I water them at the same time the the one did seem more wet. Thank you for the quick response!
