 8627 Cilantro Indoors

Think it would be fun to grow cilantro in a flower pot?  Well, it's very easy to do!  The best part is that it is not only easy to do but think of what you can do with fresh cilantro growing indoors during winter!  Salsa anyone!

Cilantro grows best in cooler temps.  It does well when potted outside in spring, fall and even early winter.  Unfortunately if you want to grow cilantro outside during the summer it will go to seed fast and end its' growing life.  So the best thing to do is fill a garden pot with it indoors and have it available all year long.

Start by filling
 with potting mix.  Cilantro likes all kinds of pottery so this is the time to choose a planter that matches your home decor.  Just make sure that there is a drain hole.  No herb not even cilantro likes to have it's roots sitting in stagnant water.  Water the potting mix now and get it damp.  Make sure the overflow comes out the bottom of the pots drain hole.

Sprinkle the cilantro seed over the surface of the moist soil evenly.  Cover with 1/4" of potting soil and mist it with water to moisten.  Now is the time to start misting the soil to keep it moist till the seeds germinate.

Take the pot and place in direct sunlight.  Hopefully the potted cilantro will get 6 hrs of direct sunlight per day. Mist the soil when it begins to dry out and keep misting for 7 days till germination.

Now water the plants when the top soil dries and rotate the pot so that all sides of the cilantro get sunlight. Here is the fun part.  Harvesting the cilantro leaves.  Wait till the indoor potted plant grows 4" in height and have full size leaves.  Cut the leaves with kitchen shears leaving at least one set of leaves on each plant.  We recommend you harvest off different sections of the pot so that each plant has time to regrow.

Lastly fertilize the potted cilantro when the plants are 6 weeks old.  This will help to keep the grow steady and healthy.  Now top salsa with these beauties and enjoy.
