What is the diameter of the top of the pots? Is there an opening in the bottom? If yes, do you see roots there? If so, they need to be replanted into pots at least 2 inches larger than the current ones. What do you mean by maintaining the pots?
Harvest basil by pinching a bunch of leaves from the top of the stem. Never take more than 1/3 of the plant at once. Picked basil doesn't keep well, so only take what you will use at one time.
Water in the morning. I'd water at least twice a week, more if it's hot outside. If they start to wilt, they need water.
