Saving a Dying Japanese Mint
Check out the before and after shots of a Japanese Mint plant. The "before" shot was taken 25 days ago and the "after" shot was taken today. As you can see, the plant has visibly perked up since almost dying a month ago. What happened? Well, I saw this sickly plant in my garden and figured that it might be sun deprivation or over watering. To resolve both problems, I tied the pot with straw and hung it on a sunny wall. True enough, a month later, no more crumpled leaves. And there's even a new shoot growing. Ah, the sun can do wonders for our plants.
