I truly think it will perk up. By tomorrow you'll be "growing" basil. It will produce quite a bit more than you expect! You'll get your money's worth and then some. Heat some olive oil, garlic, add a can of drained tomatoes, cook until reduced some (salt and pepper, of course). Remove from heat once it reduces some (maybe 30 minutes on medium), add some basil chiffonade, toss with angel hair - GREAT dinner and so easy and inexpensive!
I do have a question - did it say "hydroponic" anywhere on that container?
