|Basil & Dill, Peppermint, a currently blossomless petunia(?), and a sun-loving flower of unremembered name. Also pictured: a window that gets direct sunlight!|
I initially had peppermint, cilantro, and two flowers I've forgotten the name of. I think the one in the little pot is a petunia; the maintenance guy at my last place gave it to me when I moved out. The tall ones I bought, but the name now escapes me.
There wasn't much rhyme or reason to my selections. The flowers were supposedly hardy even when lacking water. I like peppermint tea. I make recipes that call for cilantro. I didn't do much investigation about whether these plants survive well in an apartment.
Ultimately, the cilantro didn't survive. Something infested the leaves, and some ants started a nest in the soil. So out that went, and in went basil and dill from my CSA. I think I'm due to get one or two more plants through the CSA, and those will fill out the left-most pot in the picture above.
