Normal Catnip Sprout Coloring

Well when I was watering my herbs I noticed my catnip sprouts where greenish brown. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the normal color of sprouts are. Thank you for any help

Here are some pictures of catnip seedlings (Nepeta cataria). Does this help?

Thank you for trying but it doesn't help. I'm talking about sprouts not the full grown plant.

Those are pictures of seedlings. Do you mean something else by "sprouts"? Are you asking about sprouted seeds, instead of young plants? Maybe something similar to alfalfa sprouts, that you plan to eat? :?

freshly sprouted as they've just popped up from the soil.

Here is what my catnip looks like right now. Took this pic just a few days ago.

Maybe this will be easier if RawrMyRose posted photos of the sprouted catnip.... Could you?

I have to admit I usually only notice them after they take on their blueish fuzzy coloring, but I just have them growig outside. My typical reaction is "Oh! That looks like catnip, I guess I'll let it stay/need to transplant it when it's a little bit bigger.". :wink:
