    Im sprouting basil on my window sill, gets pretty good light, but at night gets a bit cold, so close to the window. They havent grown much, should i put lights on them? How long should i expect them to get tall enough to repot?

    They'll get leggy stretching towards the light in the window will, and the cold temps. at night (depending on your location) will be an issue. Top light and bottom heat would be best: keep the lights close to the tops, repotting depends on the pot size you're presently using: sometime around the first set of true leaves in cell packs, longer in larger pots. It's early to be starting basil in northern regions.
