How do I grow indoor herbs in a small apartment with little light and heat?

The concern should not be so much in regards to the warmth; but, the amount of light which you can give it. Other factors - such as plant size which translates into the size of the container - are also valuable considerations. I'm not certain the varieties of herbs (assuming culinary here) you are looking at; but, parsleys, chives, rosemary and lemon balm are particularly good at tolerating lower amounts of light - altho they still need to receive some light. I have also had good luck growing 'cat-mint' - a variety of catnip - and also peppermint and pennyroyal herbs too. Good luck.

Greetings Satki,

Growth in many species in the mint family (Lamiaceae) is regulated by day length (photoperiodism) thus they will have minimul growth (if any) when the day lenght is too short. There are numerous research papers addressing this phenomenon as seen in the following abstract:

Effect of different photoperiodic regimes on growth, flowering and essential oil in Mentha species
A.H.A. Farooqi1, N.S. Samgwan1 and R.S. Sangwan1

(1) Central Institute of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (CSIR), P.O. CIMAP, Lucknow-, 226 016, India

Abstract: Three major cultivated Mentha spp. (M. arvensis, M. citrata and M. cardiaca) were grown under short-days, normal-days or long-days for 60 cycles. Subsequent to photoperiodic treatment, the plants were assessed for growth behaviour, essential oil content, oil composition and essential oil biosynthesis. The species grew better under long-day conditions. The long-day treatment resulted in flowering in M. citrata, which normally does not flower under our conditions. The oil concentration and biogenesis was maximal in short-day plants. The photoperiodic treatment also affected the oil composition. The observations are discussed in relation to physiology of the oil biogenesis.

I would suggest that you increase your light intensity and extend the day by means of artificial light. I hope this helps.
