|Hi all - an extreme novice to growing herbs indoors here, so this may be me worrying over a very nothing situation. I did a curbside pick-up this weekend, and due to the circumstances, there was no conversation or ability for me to examine the quality of the plants before I accepted them. When I got home, I noticed that my mint plant is covered in black spots.
Does this look like something from which the plant can recover, or is this more serious (/fatal?) rust or blight? I'm unsure if I should stick it out with this plant, or contact the garden center about a replacement.
If it's not fatal to the plant, does anyone have any tips for how I can ensure the health of the plant?

|You're keeping the soil too wet, allow the top inch to dry well before waterings.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

|This is a disease. Usually doesn't hurt it too much, but I wouldn't eat it. Sometimes caused by overwatering. Mine get it every spring. I don't spray, I just remove the infected leaves. The plant grows new leaves.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
