    Too bad almost none of the plants are actually herbs. Eating these houseplants is not recommended!

    I would probably hang a growlamp over the herb shelf because my kitchen doesnt have the best sun exposure. You can probably recycle jars instead of buying mason jars (pickle, etc.), since those clamps are easily adjustable.
