Slegers’ Catnip is certified organic so you are giving your feline friend a safe, pesticide and herbicide-free treat. Catnip is a species from the mint family. It contains Nepetalactone, an essential oil that approximately 50% of cats have a hereditary sensitivity to.
To care for your catnip, keep it in direct sun for at least six hours. On extremely hot days place it in indirect sun so it doesn’t struggle and stress too much. Water it when it fells light and dry: place in a saucer, water the soil keeping the leaves dry. Let access water drain into the saucer and drain the saucer after 10 minutes to prevent root rot. Don’t worry if you forgot to water it and it seems too dry, catnip is happier on the dry side and can bounce back once watered. If the environment is extremely humid provide air circulation to prevent fungal growth. Prune off flowers to encourage bushier growth.
