What should I do to make my indoor herb garden kit healthy again?

I bought an indoor herb garden kit from aero garden, and it contains Parsley, Basil, and Mint. I really liked the kit as I followed the instructions carefully, and could notice that my herbs grew fantastically well for some time, until they were around 2 inches tall. However, now they seem to stop growing, and the soil remains wet the entire night. I have been plucking the leaves of the plants and used them for culinary purpose but it was only when my sister advised me to trim some leaves to avoid overgrowing of leaves. I would really like to know from some gardening expert what should I do to my indoor herb garden kit to make it normal and healthy again! Please advice aptly, before my herbs start dying!

Since you have planted herbs inside your house which requires sunlight for few hours in a day, then there are artificial lamps available in the market that can be used as a substitute to the sunlight. However the place to keep your herb pot is on the windowsill. While growing the herbs indoors, you should keep in mind that you are maintaining the humidity level required for that particular plant along with its light requirements. Different herbs require different type of environment to grow healthy. Some need more sunlight compared to other and may be some are to be strictly kept out of sun i.e. indoors. Therefore it is preferred to plant the herbs in pots. Pots can be moved comfortably whenever required. Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, French Tarragon and Oregano like full sun and Rocket, Sorrel, Mizuna, Mustard, Parsley and Chervil like partial sun. When you are done with planting the seed, the most important thing is to keep the soil moist all the time. Regular watering is the best way to ensure the presence of moisture in the soil. You should always water them in the morning because when you water them in the evening they can die due to sudden temperature change, especially the herbs which grow in full sun.It is necessary to add fertilizers because when you water the plant it drains away the nutrients from the soil. Organic manures are always a better option than the chemical fertilizers.
