Coriander is a slow-growing microgreen and can take between 3-4 weeks. You can also grow these microgreens into the matured green with our organic seeds.
Coriander is best grown in temperate climates which means the cooler months in Singapore.
It is best to use a well-drained medium with a germination mix. Clay or garden soil tend to be too hard, not allowing the roots to penetrate through easily. Our preferred medium is a mix of peat and organic vegetable compost. This is where you could reuse your potting mix from growing your microgreens.
How It's Done
If you have already grown coriander as microgreens, remove some of the seedlings (with the roots) and repot them into the medium above. Make sure the medium is well watered so it is moist.
If you are growing them from seeds:
- Split the seeds by placing them in a cloth bag and using a rolling pin. Apply a little force so the seeds crack open.
- Soak the seeds overnight to soften the outer layer or covering of the seed. This also helps fasten the germination process.
- Sow the seeds evenly on moistened medium and give the seeds a good spray of water
- Cover the seeds with a layer of the medium and allow to germinate for 10-14 days
- Once the seeds have germinated, place them in a bright area, but not under direct sunlight.
- When watering coriander, especially after germination, it is important to spray the medium with water to keep it moist. Do not pour water onto the medium as the young seedlings will get displaced.
To use them as microgreens, harvest when they are about 5cm.
So go ahead, you're now set to take your coriander microgreens to the next level!
