A convenient and easy method to grow cilantro at home without soil

Do you want to grow greens at home, but don’t want to mess with the soil? In this case, take note of this idea. At first, it seems paradoxical, but the growing method is so simple, clear, and effective that it attracts immediately.

So, to germinate cilantro, you need to buy good coriander seeds. For better germination in a mortar, you need to split the seeds in half. Only in half, no more. Never grind seeds into dust like a spice.

Now prepare some kind of container where the colander will fit. Fill with clean filtered water. Hard tap water is not suitable. For better germination and seed assistance, you can add half a teaspoon of any mineral fertilizer directly to the water.

Place the colander on top so that the bottom touches the water slightly. Sprinkle only 1/3 of all the chopped seeds immediately, and then add the rest every 5-7 days. This will prolong the growth of the greenery, and you will have a large harvest for a long time because the seeds sprinkled later will yield a harvest after those that germinated first.

Keep your seeds moist at all times. To do this, on top of them, you can put a napkin soaked in water and periodically spray it from a spray bottle. When young sprouts appear, the napkin can be removed. Keep the seeds in a warm, light place without direct sunlight.

Here’s what happens after 40 days:

Fertilized water needs to be renewed every 15 days. In total, you will do this 3-4 times, depending on how many times you manage to harvest fresh cilantro at home!
