Its been 4 months since we’ve been quarantined and locked down in our homes. Our lives have turned upside down, our daily schedule is a mess and in the end we are a total mess! The lockdown has brought many changes in our life some are good and some bad! The most common problem we all are facing is how to pass the ample free time we’ve got now.

Its so good to see, people have started doing and trying out new things to keep themselves occupied at home. One such amazing hobby people turned to is ‘gardening’.

As the title reads I am going to be showing you how to grow mint from cutting ways to grow mint at home

Growing Mint From Cuttings:

You can grow mint without any seeds at home indoors in a well-lit place. It is a very easy process, so let us begin :

Step 1:

 Buy a bunch of mint from your local vendor, open the bunch, and start the segregation of the branches. Make sure you the choose branches that are thick and sturdy. 

Step 2 :

After you’ve selected your thick and healthy branches, cut your mint branches to approximately about 4-6 inches. See the size of the cutting from the pictures mentioned above which will help you give a rough idea, and then cut accordingly.

Step 3 :

After cutting your mints, make sure you remove all the leaves and branches from the bottom section and leave the top portion of the leaves. Please refer to the third image. Basically the portion of the cutting which is supposed to be in water will have no leaves.

Step 4 :

Keep your mint cuttings in a glass jar, bottle, or whatever works best for you. Change the water every 3 days, some might get roots in 3 days while some might take a week or more too. Keep checking you never when you might get your roots. Be patient, as all good things take time 🙂

Step 5 :

Once your roots start growing this is how your roots will look like! If your stems or cuttings start looking like this, then its time for your babies to go in the soil. *taps thyself on thy back*! The second picture is a basic set up of how you pot a plant/cutting in soil.

Step 6 :

Very soon, your mint babies will grow many fresh and green leaves that will grow slowly to become a big mint plant that you always wanted! You can harvest fresh mint from your home itself, for your chai, for your chutneys, and definitely for your garnishes. Water you mint babies only when the soil gets dry!

So that’s all folks! This is how you grow mint from cuttings! Pretty simple isn’t it? Let us know how you thought of the steps and the tips. You can always buy seeds from the nursery and grow mints too.

So what are you waiting for? Start growing mint from cuttings today at home in this lockdown without buying anything from outside. We hope that you found this article useful and interesting!
