My mint plant (bought about 2 months back) is drying and the leaves are going brown. The stems have fallen to the sides as well. I dried it out a few times and changed its position but I'm not sure if it's a problem of inadequate watering or light. Please help!


Mint likes moist soil and will tolerate shade (ref) so if the plant were mine I would cut back the unsightly part and then dunk the entire pot in a bucket of water for an hour or so. Then drain off the surplus, return to cache-pot and wait for fresh shoots - which should not take long (if all goes well!) as it grows fast ("four inches per month").


Put it outside, don't water it anymore.
