During the first two weeks a temperature of 26℃ / 79℉ would be perfect to promote germination, but your normal home conditions work well also.
Oregano grows in a quite unique creeping manner, like a small ball of mess, but that is just the way it grows! The older it gets, the messier it grows.
Be sure to cut your Oregano back strongly and use its leaves for cooking! Prune the plant and leave about 1 inch / 2.5 cm or at least 2 pairs of true leaves to grow to promote new growth.
If you don’t prune your Oregano pod it will flower, you can use these pretty pink little flowers to garnish your dishes.
Depending on how much you love your oregano, one pod may last up to 3 months.
If your plant is old and starts to degrade feel free to remove the plant from the cartridge and plant it outdoors. Oregano will grow as a perennial herb also in hardy climate. If it flowers it will set seed and you’ll have new plants in your garden with zero effort.
