What is the Trick?
1. Getting a Healthy Mint Plant
Head to the store and pick a strong mint plant. Make sure it looks healthy and has bushier growth and vibrant leaves. You can also ask your friends or neighbors for a small mother plant. You might get it for free.
2. Pinch the Top
Gently cut the top part of the several stems. You need to make sure your cut is neat and at the right spot so that you get at least one node in each cutting; a node is a bumpy part where new leaves and stems appear.
3. Plant this
Planting those top part cuttings you picked is the most important step here. Either plant the cuttings in the same container or gather a couple more pots filled with your usual potting mix to do this. And yes, you don’t need to buy pots for this, just cut the bottom part of the soda bottles for this.
Here are the best types of mint varieties.
4. Keep an Eye on them
After planting, you need to keep the soil moist but not too wet. Place these mint cuttings together with your mint plant and keep planting the top 3-4 inches tips every other week in new pots.
