So I have made 3 attempts in trying to grow coriander. Tried both in pots and flatbeds. Germination rate is very less. Plus the leaves aren't dense. Have gone through GG's coriander growing guide many times but nothing helps.

 

Looking out for people here who have had success with growing (dense) coriander.

I figured out it doesn't need light to germinate. 

I want to know what kind of pot is best? Flat bed (5-6 inches deep) tray? Or 10-11 inches deep pot?

How do the roots of Coriander grow? vertically Down or horizontal?

What kind of weather is preferred by Coriander?

 

Please advise!

I had similar issues. I changed the seeds and it is growing now reasonably well. Bought seeds from a KR Market seeds shop in Bangalore.

Hai,you should buy coriander  seeds which are in dull brown coloured which is natural.Bright yellow coloured seeds are          sulpher treated having zero germination .Coriander prefer sandy loam rich with leaf compost need well sun light do              less better in rainy season.thank you.

Wow Shweta, How did you manage to get hold of the seeds from Bangaolore, Lalbagh? Via GG?

Till now I have always used a packet of Hybrid Coriander seeds bought from Sadar, Gurgaon.

This time, I tried my hands with the Coriander seeds we use in Kitchen. cracked them open and have sown them in plastic cookie trays, with well drainage. Have used soil + coco peat as medium. Have covered them with a plastic sheet. Lets see how do they fare this time.

 

@Raghu - Thanks for your tip. I do recollect when ever I buy coriander from the market it has sand all over is roots, so am guessing it will need sand. What exactly do you mean by Loamy?

I can mix sand with compost or coco peat. Let me know

Hai,snorkel4u  mix sand,silt,clay&plenty of organic matter /composed leaf mold this medium will retain less water&rich in      nutrient value for coriander.

i've grown coriander & the seeds germinate fast & quite easily....- Rains aren't a good time though for them

the root is a taproot i think(grows more vertically down).. so giving it some depth would be a good idea.

transplanting might effect it

 

good luck

Hello~

Corainder has tap roots and I think provision for deep rooting would help.

I've been successfully growing coriander for sometime now. I grow them in a small pot, tins, basin, parcel cups & with other plants. I have observed it grows well in sunlight, it needs not of nitrogen. Giving cotton seed meal solution will help a lot also try compost tea. BTW I use regular seeds from my kitchen.

Hello,

I had sown the seeds of coriander (dhaniya) few days back and I see that majority of the seeds have sprouted. The mistake I have been doing is, I used to sow the seeds deep into the soil or cover the seeds with more soil. This time, I just sprinkled the seeds on the soil and sparsely added soil as top layer. Within couple of days, I saw seedlings sprouting.

Good experience!

Regards

Jay
