We grow common mint for mojitos using a plastic window-box about 1 1/2 to 2 feet long. It has a water tray underneath to keep dirty water from dripping everywhere. On light sailing days it sits on the cabin top, windy days inside the dodger, and very bad days and at night offshore down below aside the main salon table. I start the window box a month or so before we leave for the summer so it's ready to use on the first evening anchored. The mint has always made it through the whole summer (2-2 1/2 months.) There's nothing like a fresh mojito at sundown!

Aw damn those were the 2 things I was hoping to be able to keep alive when I buy my boat. Though I guess I can grow them in my office and just remember to harvest them as needed...
