My experience with the the corriader we buy for kitchen use was not good but the seeds from the nursery sprout takes quite long to sprout have not noted down the number of days but I think it took a little over a week for me.

Hi Sweta,

Try to cover the tray with clear plastic cover as GG suggested to get humidity.

For me seeds(even the seeds from grocery shop) are germinating but plants are flowering very soon.BTW it will take more than a week.

Hi Shweta,

 

I have tried growing Coriander and one thing not highlighted here is, Coriander doesn't need light for germination. I don't know how much of it is true, but it worked for me. I was using hybrid Coriander seeds. Not the one we use in home. The only difference I found between the 2 were that the latter were treated/ cured for pests or other problems. They were coated with a red/ pink paint which got on to my fingertips as well.

I didn't beat them with a slipper, how ever I used a flat scale or for that matter anything flat, till they just crackle and split open. You don't need to powder them.

I then sowed them in moist soil + peat. and help them in a cupboard. Within 1 week they germinated and are now hungry for sunlight. After the first true leaves I can see the actual coriander leaves in them. However they are not as bushy as you get in the grocery shop. It will be a month before they reach that level.

 

I wanna know how to the roots of Coriander grow? Do they grow deep or do they grow sideways?
