Mint seems to do really well indoors, at least where I have it, in a north facing window, that gets reflected sun.
I have the plants in wall hanging planters, in the kitchen, and in a stacking planter with other herbs, the mint plants like to trail when planted like this, and look pretty dangling down.
I like to use mint on cooking too, and enjoy a glass of mint tea on a hot summers day. Check out my peppermint remedy page for more info on the benefits of mint. and a recipe for a simple mint tea.
Wild mint, which I think is apple-mint
Eau de Cologne Mint (a very strong peppermint)
Peppermint (a beautiful perfect peppermint)
Mild peppermint (this one is like a cross between a garden mint and a peppermint)
Some of these mints are probably sub species, or crosses, like the mild peppermint one, and maybe the wild mint. I know that mints like to cross-pollinate, so I remove the mint flowers before they get a chance. It might be interesting to try and breed a new mint though...I wonder if mint will cross pollinate with other members of the mint family, like ground ivy, or dead nettle - I doubt it., but it would be cool to have minty deadnettle plants.
The next mint plant I want is a spearmint, these like a lot of root space so that one will probably be going outside.
