I have gotten my hands on catnip seeds, because one day I had the bright idea, that...my wife has a cat..and we buy dried catnip..might as well plant one and not have to buy it again. plus its fresh so it's stronger and better than the store stuff.
Anyhoo, I have been able to get the seeds to sprout their first (non true) leaves, growing in my moisture control potting mix from miracle gro. They shortly after sprouting those leaves, start to wilt. This is a north south window facing home, so my feeling is, after reading, that I
1. need to let the soil be more dry..just barely moist, and if so, maybe i am not doing that..i need to let the soil dry out more?
2. should I keep a growing light(I have a lamp with a Compact fluourescent lamp that I just now started to put just above the plants for 12 hours a day) on them for most of the day to promote growth so they stop getting tall lanky, and wilting?
I can't think of anything else that would be causing them to wilt, and I am by no means a green thumb, just following all catnip growing advice I see online. Thanks for the help!!
