I’ve just started a small indoor herb garden. All my herbs look great but the Cilantro. Does it need fertilizer?

yeah… don’t kill it like I did. :) I don’t really know what I did wrong. I think Cilantro needs a lot of sun. I had it in a window that didn’t get much sun. Fertilizer probably wont hurt, either.

  1. I always plant mine in a sunny corner (outside) and ignore it for a while; it seems to like to be ignored, not watered except by rain, and generally left alone, soon you’ll walk by it, remember it, and you’ll have a big clump of cilantro.
    Spread a little compost around the plant, it will thank you later

  2. My guess is that you’re over-watering it. The soil should be moist, but not wet; people tend to kill plants with kindness, so you’re not the first. Let the soil dry out between waterings; also be sure it is getting enough light. If the leaves look dry, then it could be getting too much, but it’s hard to give most herb plants too much, even in direct sun. Good luck!
