Hi, I bought a pot of spearmint plant recently for food garnish purpose, and since I don't know much about gardening, I depend alot on information found online.
I have some questions here, and hope mint plants experts in this forum can help me with them, Thank you so much!
Pic1. This pic is taken on the day I bought my spearmint from a nursery.
Pic2. Two weeks since I bought my plant.
Pic3. Four weeks since I bought my plant.
Pic4. Four weeks since I bought my plant.
My concerns are... in pic2 my plant is still standing up but in pic3 my mint plants seems to fall aside, and they don't stand up straight (esp the side ones). Are these normal? I place the plant on the corridor, and every morning the plants wil get around 3hrs of direct sunlight on a sunny day, when the sun shines in from the left side of the picture ( I live in Singapore)
When I first noticed they don't stand up straight I thought they're dying, but after sometime they seems still growing, with more branches and leaves (pic4).
I fertilize the plant twice a month, and water them once to twice a day depends on the weather and soil dryness condition.
From the pictures, is my mint plant doing well? Is it a must to trim them cause now they look very bushy?
Thank you all!
