How do I split and repot in mint?
A: Mint is a perennial plant that can be divided and repotted in the spring. To divide mint, you will need to remove the plant from its pot and cut it into sections with a sharp knife. Then, replant each section of the mint back into its own pot or container.
How do I keep my mint plant healthy?
A: You can water your mint plant every day. Mint plants need a lot of moisture, so it is best to keep the soil moist. You should also be careful not to overwater your plant, as this can cause root rot and other issues.
