How to start
Ensure that the soil is moist (not wet nor dry), so avoid over watering.
Keep the mint plant in a place where it will receive morning sunlight and partial afternoon shade. Within a few days, you will find new leaves coming up. Add vermicompost once in 10 or 15 days.
As Mint spreads fast, make sure the pot/bag is broad enough.
Once fully grown, you can harvest mint leaves and enjoy using it in your dishes.
I love to flavor my buttermilk, lemonade, iced tea etc with homegrown fresh mint leaves. I also make many dishes with mint leaves. Check out my Mint Recipes. Mint tea is good for digestive problems. If you suffer from cold, blocked nose, headache, steaming with fresh mint leaves helps to alleviate the problem.
