Question mint cuttings fail to survive in soil

Suppose to be a very easy plant but failed miserably in propagating from stem cutting. This will be my 4th attempt at growing the mint plant. I leave the stem cuttings in a glass of water till tiny roots start appearing. Next will transfer them to a potted soil. They look good the first 2 days but after that the leaves start drooping and stem rots away. For a change i will try growing them indoor to see if it will help. And certainly open for any suggestion from green fingered members.

Cool, I have a full blown garden with the following grown in hydroponic and traditional methods.

1. 3 types of mint
2. Rosemary
3. Thyme
4. French Beans
5. Tomatoes (2 varieties)
6. Basil (Italian and Thai)
7. Sweet potato
8. Chilli
9. Bell Peppers (4 color types)
10. Snow Peas (Dao Miao)
11. Kang Kong (Water Spinach)
12. Water Melon
13. Coriander (Chinese Celery)
14. lettuce
15. Corn
16. papaya
17. Sunflower

Seems like a lot, but I have a fair bit of land space. I do provide seed exchange as well, do PM me.
i realised you do not have lavender.

Any specific reasons?

Ntuc sell all the seed but did not name the type.
Dasio can get many beginner gardening too.
Daiso sells seeds too?! Do they show the names of the seed unlike NTIC as you have mentioned?

Mint is easy to grow only when it has strong roots. At the beginning, it's very likely to die from a variety of reasons. Especially when just transplanted to soil it'll experience environmental 'shock'.

I think they need full sun. I had them growing in the balcony and they went wild. I tried growing it in indirect light and it didn't do well AT ALL.
