Coriander is one of the ancient herbs in treating many ailments like obesity, menstrual issues, controlling kaba and many more.

Planting

It can be planted on water bottles with the top lid up to the neck cut off, small baby bath tubs which give more yields, flower pots
(this is the last option).

Seeds

Coriander seeds are easily available in most of the organic stores. Make sure it is native variety, not hybrid or GM seeds. You can also get in touch with Greenhands project for seeds.

Sowing

Sowing coriander seeds should be done in a even manner as harvesting and watering becomes difficult I’d the seeds and sowed dense in a single place. Better to draw line like markings in the soil and sow the seeds evenly in every row giving space between each row.

Soil

Porous soil is best suited for coriander. Make sure the u can stick ur finger inside it. Tats the porous consistency. A mix of coding and vermicompost is an added advantage.

Watering

Use sprayes for watering and the stem is very fragile and too much watering is not gud for the plant. All it needs it is wetness.

Duration

5 weeks

Important note: Use of scrap water bottles, scrap tubs trays are the best as coriander has very small root so it doesn’t need a shallow pot. I prefer hanging them by kitchen window to get a cilantro breeze inside the kitchen and hanging these greens is the best way to save space.
