About Coriander Plants: Coriander plants are annually evergreen growing plants/herbs. Coriander seeds and leaves are one of the best herbs in the family of Apiaceae. Leaves and seeds are eatable with lots of benefits for your health. Most of the time, leaves are used to make different types of vegetables, and seeds are used as a spice. The scientific name of coriander is Coriandrum sativum, and it comes with the family of the Apiaceae family.

Seedling Types

Simple Way for Seedling: Seedling methods are simple and reliable, and there is no need to take care of too many plants. Coriander seeds are light bronze in colour with round shapes, and the size of the seeds is 1 to 2 mm long. Seeds are easily available in local shops or online stores. Don’t buy sliced seeds or always buy large and fresh seeds. Fresh and large seeds are easily grown with the best results.

Prepare a Soil Mixture & Planting Seeds: To make a good quality soil potting, take well-drained garden soil (60%) and compost (50%). Please take out the seeds and keep their seeds in water for 2 to 3 days. Mix it well and take a large tray flowerpot (size at least 2 feet long).

  • Fill the soil mixture into a flowerpot.
  • Take out the seeds from the water.
  • Spray seeds on the soil mixture and cover all the seeds with the same soil mixture.
  • Give water properly and place the flowerpot in the full sunlight.

Within 2 to 3 days, germination starts from the seeds, and new small leaves and stems appear from the seeds. After germination of seeds, spray some water (if the soil is dried). Keep the plants in full sunlight.

Remember while seedling: USDA hardiness zone should be 3-11, and soil mixture should be slight. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no holes at the surface, then make 5 to 9 holes (Drainage holes are necessary). Cover the holes with a grenade or stones. Use a ceramic flowerpot. The distance between the seeds should be 2 to 3 cm.

Transplantation Tips: There is no need to transplant plants; if the seedlings are in the large flowerpot and the seedlings are in a small flowerpot, you can transplant them to another flowerpot. Use the same soil mixture.
