Seriously, it's gone from my last post with this same tag and gotten even worse.

The top is still growing like crazy, shooting out new leaves daily. The bottom is still collapsing into what looks like disease-ridden ruin, spots and withers and general unhappy plant action.

I have a green thumb! My oregano, two parsley plants, my aloe and hibiscus and the chives are all thriving. WHY DOES THE BASIL TASK ME? IT HEAPS ME. I SEE IN IT OUTRAGEOUS STRENGTH WITH AN INSCRUTIBLE MALICE SINEWING IT.
