I had planted herb seeds in starter pots. They all came up. Looked so pretty and green. When they were big enough I transplanted them into larger pots and set them on my window sills. At which point most of them just laid down and died.
I can grow just about anything in a garden. But I'll be darned if I can keep a plant alive indoors. I baby them. I am careful not to over water them or under water them. I even talk to them. Tell them how pretty they are. Doesn't matter. They just won't grow for me.
There are a few stragglers left and they look pretty sad. So I'm going to give it one more try and plant the rest of my seeds directly in the larger pots. And if that doesn't work I will just pack up the whole kit and kaboodle until next spring when I will buy starter plants.
