Care & Harvest

💡Temperature: Prefers cooler temperatures (60-70°F).

 

✂️ Pruning: Remove leaves with brown spots if they appear. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod

 

🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant’s life. Pinch off individual leaves, or use clean shears to cut stems above growth nodes. Find growth nodes just above the two largest leaves on a stem. You should see another, small set of leaves or knobs (nodes) growing between the stem and larger set of leaves. Cut the stem 1/4-1/2″ above the nodes and watch the small leaves grow large!

Quick Facts

Catnip is an herb in the mint family native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. Its Latin name, Nepeta cataria, is derived from Neptic, the ancient Etrurian city where people first cultivated it. People have long used Catnip in medicinal teas, even before large importations of Chinese tea made its way across Europe in the early 1600s.

Catnip works its magic by producing Nepetalactone, the chemical that excites our feline friends. Some cat owners report a stimulating effect on their pets, while others report relaxation. Nepetalactone is also a potent insect repellent.

You and your pets can try Catnip leaves and flowers dried or fresh. While it is unclear if Catnip is safe for humans when consumed in large quantities, small amounts taken orally or steeped in tea can have soothing, anxiety-calming effects.
