Wilting mint plant

Zone Labelle Fl 33935 | Glk added on November 12, 2015 | Answered

I brought home a healthy looking mint plant a week ago. I've got it in a pit area in a semi sunny window and have been watering it occasionally. It's getting yellow spindly stems and dead leaves on bottom. Am I over or under watering it?

Yellowing leaves usually do indicate a watering issue.
You will need to check the soil, it should be moist but not overly wet.

It's best to check the soil, not water on a schedule.

Remove any dead leaves and you can prune back any leggy stems.
Make sure it is in a bright sunny location.
