I have grown cilantro inside, on my kitchen window sill. I get south sun for most of the day. I keep it watered, and cut back. Nothing to it. If you'd like to grow more than just one herb, try a starwberry pot, planting differant herbs in each pot. When need to cut them back, I freeze them. I simply put them in freezer bags and then tape the bags to the inside lid of my freezer. Doesn't take up space, saves them from being crushed.
