Coriander, a crop that needs no introduction on its uses or benefits. It is used in every dish that we prepare. Almost all the fried dishes are garnished with coriander due to its rich flavour.
Growing coriander can be little tricky, but with right process you can do it very easily.
1. Break the coriander seeds into two haves and sow in soil or cocopeat at 1-0.5 cm depth and moist the media. Keep the tray or pot in dark place and avoid air circulation. (You can do this by wrapping a sheet around the tray)
2. Check for moisture every day till the seed germinate. Coriander germinates in 7-10 days
3. Provide light for these sprouts after germination to avoid lanky growth. (Elongated stem that eventually falls due to weight of plant and inhibits growth)
4. Grow these saplings in semi shade for 7-10 days before you transplant it to a bigger pot or any hydroponic system.
5. After transplanting provide full sunlight for its healthy growth and make sure to supply nutrition for your plant.
6. You can harvest coriander in 45-70 days from sowing.
