| Mints in the House? |

I have at least a dozen different mints outside and would like to bring some in to brighten up and freshen up my office. I think hanging them would be nice, but my question is with regard to variety. which varieties can withstand less light better? I’d rather give myself half a chance!
All of the Mentha species can take a bit of shade, but not all are equally tough under adverse conditions. I have found peppermint, Austrian mint and watermint to be the toughest. You could hang them in baskets and periodically rotate some of them to an outdoor(somewhat shaded location) for recuperation.
