Too Much or Too Little?

I'm growing licorice from seed. Currently I have 3 pots of Oriental and Official. They have miniture leaves and miniture hard wood stems. They have been growing in these pots for some time. They have died out for the season and come back again a couple times. They are however, not getting any larger 2-4" in height. Could this be due to the size of the pot? I currently have them in 6" pots with so-so soil. I'm assuming repotting into larger pots with more organic matter will help growth. Is there any other advice for growing licorice in pots?

If you increase the size of the container you should have better success. A good mix for your Licorice root is of 1 part sand 1 part compost and 1 part loam.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
