I bought a perfectly healthy looking mint plant a few weeks ago. It was outgrowing it's small pot so I repotted it. I've started to notice the leaves are starting to turn a lighter color green, there are burnt looking parts (crispy looking) on the large leaves and some of the small ones and the leaves seem to be somewhat curling a lot. Also a lot of the lower smaller leaves have dried up and died. I have no idea what could be happening!

Are you growing this inside the house? Is it receiving any light?

Cold window, Seattle Washington. Maybe move it away from the cold glass and give it more warmth and better lighting?

Is the plant it the original pot and soil? or did you repot? If yes, what kind of soil and does the pot have a drainage hole?
