Ask AeroGarden: Having Cilantro Trouble?
Question: “I have had issues trying to grow cilantro. I just can’t get it to grow…help?”
Answer: “Cilantro can sometimes be challenging. We’ve seen it take 5 to 8 weeks to germinate but we don’t want you to wait that long. Sometimes the hulls surrounding the seeds are very hard like Navy Beans and need to be soaked overnight. Another tip is pouring water right down the center of the hole and placing a quarter over the label and checking underneath it once a week for successful germination. Once it has sprouted, please remove the quarter.”
