My mint plants have no scent. Help?

Posted by: aaa_janitor In: Backyard Putting Greens

I plucked two mint plants, one about 7 inches, the other is maybe 4 or 3 inches and put them both in a pot. I sniffed them both, expecting that lovely mint scent that my other (outdoor) mint have, but alas, they lack any aroma! I am a very novice gardener (only 15) and picked mint cause it’s easy, but I’m stuck scratching my head. The thing is, my indoor mint stand (mostly) upright, are bright green and the leaves don’t have a single hole in them. My outdoor, aromatic mint are not quite as erect in their posture and have some little holes but spread quickly and have a nice taste. What’s up with my plants?

Any and all advice is welcome! Thanks in advance!

It’s not the leaves that smell, it’s the oil in the plant. You have to break open or crush the leaves.
