Two weeks ago I got a mint that was in poor condition (I sought identification for on this forum). Since then I transplanted it, watered it, and mulched it; see attached pictures for the transformation.
Almost all of the original purple tinged leaves have dried up and fallen off the plant. The remaining/new leaves are totally green and bigger than the original ones. Is this a normal part of mint growth?
In addition, the stems are thickening (as expected) but are still very flexible and wiry. Will the stems thicken so that the plant grows upright? Or is this type of mint supposed to be low growing?
I look forwards to your responses.
