  • Peppermint is a bit slow at the beginning but once it gets going it will quickly grow a lot of stems. In approximately one month it should be ready for first harvesting.
  • Make sure your Peppermint does not reach the lamp! Stems that have reached the lamp may get burnt and turn brown.
  • If some lower leaves age and turn brown, feel free to cut the stem off - new stems will grow soon.

Fun facts!

  • If you are into replanting, feel free to remove the fully grown plant from the cup and plant it outdoors. Peppermint will grow as a perennial herb, also in hardy climates.
  • It can grow almost everywhere so well, that it will become invasive. It is highly recommended to plant it in a container, so it would not escape.
