Diagnose my plants please
Hey I'm a new plant parent and I'm trying to figure out whats wrong with my spearmint. I use regular soil, 8" pot. Someone suggested that i might not have drainage i poked holes in the bottom of the pot but no water came out (i just watered her) can someone please halp. TIA!!
Make the holes bigger/make more of them. Also may just need to add more water. Water slowly, a little at a time so as not to flood the poor baby. Eventually water should come out. (:
Thank u! I use a mister, should i be using a cup instead?
Oh god yeah. You want to fully saturate the soil. Even better would be to fill the sink a bit(or anything that will hold water) and stick this in, letting it draw the water up from the bottom until fully saturated. (Watering from the top will eventually lead to compacted soil.)
Btw unless you have a plant that specifically likes high humidity, don't mist them. More often than not, that leads to fungal issues. πŸ™‚
