If it rooted in your kitchen then as a potted plant it should grow in your kitchen also. Why not just pot up a small container of it and keep in doors?

I'll try that, if I can keep the cats out of it. I found shreds in the sink this morning. Can you put mint in Kitten Teriyaki?

Catnip is actually a mint so no wonder they are loving yours.

You should see what they do to Basil...freak out! So far they've only picked on the chives once.

I could never have anything growing in my house when I had cats. The worst was the aloe. Man did that cause a mess.

I think I'd rather be plantless...can't give up my kitties. Kinda like having a two year old around all the time...even when I'm angry with them, some part of me is grinning about their cleverness!

For some reason mine doesn't to bother the basil and parsley. Okay, I smelled basil on his breath once.

The aloe is in a hanging basket. He even eats cut flowers.

Princess, I've had mixed luck. Sometimes I can't grow it like that to save my life .... but when I can, it will kill anything in its path! I will say it loves "wet feet" and will thrive under a faucet that sometimes leaks, or under your roof's downspout. I, too, grow it in pots set in the ground to exercise some sort of control over it.
