Mint propagation

Fouad123July 22, 2014

hi all .I started rooting mint cutting a week ago in water .I put a sprig of fresh mint in a cup of water and covered it with a transparent nylon bag to retain humidity and prevent direct sunlight as it is hot here in Egypt (up to 86 F )this days.when I checked the plant today i saw roots from almost all the nodes of the plant(submerged and not submerged parts ). What shall I do ?shall I remove leaves from all rooted nodes and bury it all or just bury the lower one or two nodes ?
another question : Is planting in peat moss only better or in sterilized garden soil as I don't have a lot of options regarding soil?

Thanks in advance

As you have found out, mint is EASY.

Remove the leaves from the bottom half of the plant and put it in ordinary potting soil. Keep it moist.
