    are they getting 8 hrs of full spectrum light? are you over watering? many herbs prefer to be on the dryer side. did they get a drink of fertilizer? how warm is it where they are kept? are you under watering?

    i give my herb pots 8 hours of the full spectrum bulbs, good drainage and water weekly. parsley, oregano, lemon balm, basil, rosemary, garlic all are doing fine.

    my grow lights are on a timer can't forget to turn them on, or off. i have reflectix bubble stuff on the grow table and back wall- helps with reflecting the light.

    Move them away from cold drafts and heater vents...use a light if they aren't getting enough sun and mist more often and water less.

    I over winter a lot if flowers and found some die of root rot. My solution is to plant in none soil mix (I use peat moss, vermiculite, and perlite). I also add hydrogen peroxide to water (1 tablespoon pet gallon). Might help your herbs too!

    The amount of water they need depends on the size of the pot. Smaller pots need more frequent watering. My apartment is very warm and dry so I water my herbs nearly every day. A little bit of water rather than drowning them. They do need a LOT of sunshine, if you don't have a south facing window with lots of direct sun then grow-lights are a good idea.
