Mint is one of the most versatile herbs you can grow in your home, and they provide a beautiful fresh smell all throughout the house! Additionally, mint is also one of the easiest herbs you can grow because they don’t require a lot of maintenance. Today we’ll show you how to grow mint indoors, as well as how to care for your mint plant.
How to Grow Mint Indoors in a Pot
Whether you decide to plant mint from seed or from a seedling, growing mint indoors is fairly easy!
- Choose a pot that has good drainage.
- Use a good quality potting mix so that your mint plant can grow big and healthy.
- Plant the seeds or the seedlings about an inch deep into the soil and water immediately after planting.
- Place your potted mint in a sunny location, preferably a window sill.
- Make sure the temperature is around 65-70F.
Caring for Your Mint Plant:
- Mint plants love water, so make sure the soil is always moist. Water as needed. If the soil feels dry, go ahead and give it some water, but make sure not to over-water either!
- Mint also likes humidity, so in between watering, mist the plant with a spray bottle.
- Rotate your mint plant every 3-4 days so that all sides give an even amount of sun.
- Fertilizing ins’t necessary, but if you wish, you can certainly give it an occasional dose of all-purpose water soluble fertilizer.
