How long does it take to grow?
Cilantro seeds take 12-21 days to sprout, and will be ready to start harvesting in 2+ months. Continuous harvesting will encourage a bushy plant and greater yield.
How long will it last?
A cilantro plant will continue to grow for many months with sufficient nutrients and light; however, as the plant ages, it will have a tendency to bolt (go to seed). Picking off flowers and preventing exposure to temps above 75° will minimize this.
How much sun will it need?
Herbs require at least 6 hours of direct light daily, and should be put in an unobstructed window that faces south, west or east (southwest is the best option). During winter months—or if you don’t have an unobstructed window—you can supplement with a grow light.
Can I put it outside?
Garden Jars are designed for indoor use, but can be put outside. Be mindful that the planter does not have a drain hole, and if the reservoir floods it may drown the roots. Bring your Garden Jar inside if temps dip below 55⁰ or above 80⁰.
How is it reusable?
The stainless steel net pot and recycled glass grow medium can both be reused—simply rinse with hot water. Add new seeds and use soil or coco pith to help seeds germinate. Use a water soluble fertilizer and follow its instructions.
