What other plant parents say
the leaves droop and feel lame when it needs water it’s so easy to notice cause the plant will literally look sad so it’s hard to kill. i had a chocolate mint plant and it’s died 9 or 10 times and it…
It is nice potting plants, make it become bonsai and harvest it several times to mix with tea, that awesome
this plant smells amazing and the leaves flourish
How to care for Spearmint
Spearmint needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Spearmint may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Spearmint in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Spearmint after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
