Cilantro is a rich source of minerals, such as potassium, calcium, manganese, iron and magnesium. It contains high amount of vitamins A and K. It is also a proven antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory; it can help quickly reduce infection and inflammation as it works to clear your system.
How to Grow Cilantro Indoors
1. Select a pot that has at least 8 inches of soil in it.
2. Fill the pot with a fast-draining potting soil; mix in an organic granular fertilizer.
3. Before seeding, moisten the soil using a fine spray from the hose. Because the seeds are fairly small, mix them in a bowl with sand (3 parts sand to 1 part seed) so they’ll disperse more evenly. Press the seeds just under the surface of the soil and scattered throughout the top surface of the soil. Cover with another 1⁄4 inch (0.6 cm) of soil.
4. Gently mist the soil so as not to displace the seeds.
5. Cilantro needs full sun to grow, so place it in a sunny window-sill Seeds should germinate in 7 to 10 days.
6. Cut up to 2/3 of the leaves each week, as this will encourage the plant to keep growing. Using this method, it’s possible to harvest four crops of cilantro from a single pot.
