How often do you have to water them?  Do you soak them or mist them?

I don't think that's catmint, David. I think it's catnap... Not to be confused with catnip.

Can you plant them directly, or do they need to be started indoors?   thinking

I used to grow those, but they always wound up acting like they thought they were better than me.

Me, too, so I switched cultivars from felinus to caninus which solved that!  But I do LOVE this whole post topic!  Witty and fun people all! lol!

But the species caninus is so high-maintenance!  I prefer growing things that require little care and can be left alone for a while.
