Yeah the drainage might be an issue. It also may just be weirdly one of those ones that didn't take, ya know? I circle back to soil, coz it's pretty hard to drown Thai basil - your neighbours ground might be more fertile. It shouldn't be a problem in a pot, unless the pot's too small?Got the seeds from someone's garden. The difference is they are growing from the ground instead of from a potted plant like mine.
The second problem might be soil/water drainage problem. There are times water would just pool up on soil in the pot.
Did you take the dead plant out? Was it root bound inside?
I prefer sweet/Italian basil too. Use it a lot more. But the Thai stuff has a super distinct flavour, and we do a lot of Asian cooking and it is perfect for it.I like sweet basil more, at least for growing it. I usually have two of these things and they turn out like a shrubbery with thick, woody stalks at the bottom.
