Since mint is a very fast-growing plant, it's a good idea to keep it in a pot or some sort of container with boundaries so it does not take over your garden or yard.

Node is pint on the stem where leaves energy. Remove the lower leaves from your cuttings.

 Your cuttings must be 4 to 5 inches in length. Stick the cuttings or stems into the media about 1 to 1.5 inches deep and compact it so that the cuttings are intact. Grate holes in potting mix with your finger. Push the bare stem 1 to 1.5 inches deep into the soil. Gently tamp the soil around the stem to fill the hole. Maintain a proper gap between two cuttings (about 2 inches). Now water it gently. For at least 8 to 12 days keep the container in a bright location but not in direct sunlight. Soil should remain moist, at least not wet. New growth will emerge within 10 to 15 days. After 25 days you can get the best result.
