Mint seeds like a soil temperature of 70F during germination which takes 2-3 weeks. Don't keep the soil too moist, or the seed will rot before germinating. They also don't need light to germinate, so leave them in a warm room, not under lights until you see some growth. Once germinated they grow like weeds!
