Indoors Nip Plant

Our poor Nip Plant is beginnin ta look a bit worn out!  The Big Thing says its cuz it misses the sunlight.  He gives it much as he can, but its Winter an all so there isnt much.

 Well, duh!  We know THAT!  We hardly saw a single sunpuddle all Feb, and they are usually right where the Nip plant is sittin.  When it wasnt snowin out, it was all cloudy and dark.  We doesnt really remember last Winter too well, so we hafta go with what he says.  Hes seen LOTS of Winters...

It was taller than us when TBT brought it inside in October, now its just a couple inchs with tiny leafs.

Of course, it probly doesnt help much that we nibble on it often an bat the stems fer fun (well, its right there on the floor).  The good news is that he says there are several outside already growin unnerground, so we should get ta see those in a couple Big Moons.  Yay!

We don't have any nip plants here - our mom can't really grow anything very well. We think you are so lucky to have nip plants - even if they are only a couple inches tall!

We don't get freshly grown nip, just the dried flake kind you buy. How wonderful that you have the actual plants. Hope your sun comes around soon.

I'm impressed though, your own nip plant!

I think you are lucky to have an indoor nip plant. They are pretty hardy. I bet once the sun comes back it will bounce back!

We only have fresh nip outside, so we're gonna hafta wait a few big moons before we get some too!

I need some fresh nip! I'm still in recovery from those fantastic tummy shots you posted before.

We need to have mom get one going in the planter at the side of the house.
She transplanted some she got from a neighbor one year but it never came back in the spring.
AND we need an indoor one too!
Mom! Get busy!

Maybe a little plant food would re-energize it.
