Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


Mint enjoys shady areas, but they will grow in full sun if they are watered frequently enough. They are still susceptible to strong afternoon sun so be mindful of that. If your only spot is shady, don’t worry! Mint can grow and survive in shady conditions; the plant may grow into a leggy one without as many leaves or as flavorful.

Frequent Watering


Mint love water, they thrive in moist but not soggy soil. Water your mint in the morning so the plant has moisture throughout the day as temperatures get warmer. If the top inch of soil feels dry add more water to your plant. If you notice your plant looking wilted, it needs more water.



Mint can grow in most soils; they do prefer rich soils that are slightly acidic up to a more neutral pH. Since mint can grow in anything it is important to have a well draining soil as excess water can lead to root rot. If you have a low nutrient soil you can feed your mint once a month with an all-purpose fertilizer. Repot mint when roots emerge from the soil or drainage holes, or when the plant outgrows its pot. If starting anew, propagate from cuttings for best mint flavor, older plants lose the flavor over time. When repotting, transfer to a pot one to two sizes larger with fresh soil. Loosen roots, replant, water generously, and resume regular care.

Average Humidity


Mint is a highly adaptable plant, so your plant can survive in many conditions. They can struggle in a low humidity environment so mist your plant between watering. Another option is to set your plant on a tray of pebbles filled with water.
