Hi: I started some oregano and mint indoors (never grown either before) probably at least 6 weeks ago. It seemed to germinate ok, but since then neither has grown much. Everything is barely 1/4 inch high.
I guess that oregano does not like a lot of water, and I don't think I'm over watering it. I've been putting both outside on the warm sunny days we've had lately, but still no change.
I must be doing something wrong because at this rate it will take them forever to go anywhere.
You are right about the water requirement. Oregano is a tough drought tolerant plant, once established. It doesn't like fertile soil, and it doesn't like a lot of water. Mint, on the other hand, does like consistent moisture. You probably can leave them outdoors from now on, since both like a lot of sun, especially oregano.
