I have a basil plant and am new to growing herbs. I plan to keep the plant inside the house and use it often. The one thing I have noticed is that this plant is among the thirstiest I have ever encountered. It loves, loves water! Are there any tips anyone can offer to keep the plant healthy? Anything I should watch out for? How big will the plant grow?

Just FYI I have included a link to 6 second time lapsed video of a basil plant coming back to life after water deprivation. I never want my plant to suffer this but it is great the owner was able to get the plant healthy again. YouTube - Back from the Dead
