I didn't know that mint is so easy to grow. Just put some cut stems of mint into moist soil and watched patiently if those stems will bear you with new shoots. I have placed several stems into a pot and fortunately one of them was successful!!! What a relief, and joy too!
Two days after I added some organic fertilizer to boost the growth of the mint, the lush leaves from the stem that was growing healthily in my earlier photo started to droop, some even crinkled and turn brown at the edges. My heart pained just by looking at its condition! It's time to reflect on the teaching of Impermanence by the Buddha. One day its healthy and 3 days down the road, it's losing its strength to live on!!! I think I added the fertilizer prematurely. The plant may be too young to be fertilized. I should have waited for another 2 weeks probably!! A case of more haste, less speed!!
The other stem still look well. I am praying hard that it will continue to flourish. Do you think more water to dilute effect of the fertilizer may help? Or will the water cause the mint root to rot? Please Missy Mint, you must grow well, yah!! Please Missy Mint, live on for me!! I will never dare to over-feed you again!
