How to propagate cilantro.

To propagate cilantro, you’ll need a pot, well-draining potting mix, cilantro seeds, and plastic wrap.

Fill the pot with a well-draining potting mix.

Fill the pot with a well-draining potting mix, and sow the seeds thinly and evenly. Cover the pot with plastic wrap, and place it in a warm spot.

Sow the seeds thinly and evenly.

Sow the seeds thinly and evenly over the surface of the potting mix. Make sure to press them lightly into the mix so that they make good contact with the soil beneath.

Cover the pot with plastic wrap.

After sowing the seeds, cover the pot with a layer of plastic wrap. This will help to keep the moisture in and create a humid environment ideal for germination. Place the covered pot in a warm spot out of direct sunlight.

Place the pot in a warm spot

Place your covered pots in a warm spot out of direct sunlight; an ideal temperature for germination is between 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit (21-29 degrees Celsius). You can put them on top of a radiator or near another heat source such as a hot water heater.

How to care for cilantro.

Cilantro plants need around 1 inch of water per week. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Depending on your climate, you may need to water more or less frequently. The best way to tell if your cilantro needs water is to stick your finger in the soil. If it feels dry several inches down, it’s time to water.

Apply fertilizer every two weeks.

Cilantro is a fast-growing plant, so it will benefit from regular fertilization. Use a liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks during the growing season. You can dilute the fertilizer according to the manufacturer’s directions and apply it with a watering can or garden hose attachment.

Pinch back the stems.

To encourage bushier growth, pinch back the stems of cilantro plants when they are 6-8 inches tall. Simply use your fingers to snap off the top 2-3 inches of each stem. This will encourage the plant to produce more side shoots and leaves, rather than one long stem with few leaves.

Harvest cilantro leaves.

You can begin harvesting cilantro leaves when they are 3-4 inches long (7-10 cm). Cut the stems just above where they branch off from the main stem using sharp scissors or gardening shears. Cilantro leaves can be used fresh in salads, salsa, guacamole, and other dishes, or they can be chopped and frozen for later use.”

If you’re looking to add a flavorful, herbaceous touch to your cooking, look no further than cilantro. This versatile ingredient can be used in a variety of dishes, and is easy to propagate at home. Here’s a quick guide on how to get started.

To propagate cilantro, you’ll need well-draining potting mix and cilantro seeds. Fill the pot with potting mix, then sow the seeds thinly and evenly. Cover the pot with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot. Water regularly and fertilize every two weeks. Pinch back the stems as needed, and harvest the leaves when they’re big enough to use.

With just a little bit of care, you can have an endless supply of fresh cilantro on hand for all your culinary needs. So what are you waiting for? Get growing!


Will Cilantro Cuttings Root In Water

Cilantro can definitely start to root in water, but you need to have a really healthy plant to take from for that to happen. Cilantro is a sensitive plant so you need to find fresh ones to increase your chances of rooting any.

Does Cilantro Regrow After Cutting

Cilantro is just like a lot of other herbs, a plant that can regrow after cutting it. It will of course depend on how much you are cutting away. A small bit at a time and you will see stalks growing out again. But everything at the same time and it will greatly harm the plant instead.

Growing Cilantro From Grocery Store Cuttings

Cilantro at the store can definitely be used to grow at home. Taking the cuttings though might not yield much. To increase your odds of having it grow, you should plant the whole thing. Only take the cuttings and you might be a bit disappointed with the outcome.

When it’s finally the time to harvest your cilantro then it’s very important to be able to know how you should do it. Thankfully harvesting cilantro is a pretty easy thing to do. The herb can manage some pretty harsh pruning. 

Below we are showing off some of our best methods to pruning but also harvesting and taking care of the plant afterwards.

Cilantro Plant
Cilantro Plant

What Is Cilantro

Cilantro is a very common herb to use in cooking but perhaps not as common as growing at home in all honesty. The plant grows very well in pretty much any type of climate and environment.

It likes a soil that is kept rather warm but also well watered and never left to dry out. During the day the cilantro will want to get about 6 – 8 hours sunlight at least. That will help the plant keep on track with both the growth and growing back leaves you have harvested.

How To Harvest Cilantro

Harvesting cilantro is a very easy thing to do really. The plant is relatively hardy and can manage some extra pruning and harvest. But as a ground rule we don’t generally recommend taking more than 1 third of the plant at one time.

Start by getting yourself a sharp scissor so that you are getting clean cuts and not bruising the plant when harvesting. Cut the stems close to the main stem of the plant. Don’t leave an empty cilantro plant without any leaves and just stems. Instead take the stems too and use them in your cooking, they are in fact very flavourful too.

After cutting off the stems that you need, water the soil a little bit for the plant and find a sunny spot to place it. That way it has a very easy time to regrow any part that you took off.

How To Store Fresh Cilantro

If you aren’t about to use all the cilantro you just harvested then you might want to store it correctly quickly so that no flavor is lost from the herb.

We recommend using an air-tight container here with some kitchen paper in the bottom. Leave this box in the fridge to slow down any bacterial growth. The reason we use this method is that it’s important to keep moisture away from the herb. If it’s too humid in the box then the risk of mold starting to grow on the plant greatly increases. Stored the right way you can expect it to last at least 1 week before starting to wilt a little.

How To Preserve Cilantro

There are a number of ways to use and cook cilantro. But preserving it for the long term for us boils down to two different choices, either freezing or drying the herb. They both have their positives and negatives.

How To Freeze Fresh Cilantro

Freezing fresh cilantro is very easy. We have found that the most efficient way of doing it is to use ice cube molds. We layer leaves over each other in these molds and then pour some water over. 

Now we have cilantro ice cubes that are very easy to just plop out and use in your cooking. They defrost rather quickly and the flavor of the cilantro will still be there.

How To Dry Fresh Cilantro

Drying fresh cilantro is very simple too. We often tie a bundle of the herb and then let that air dry outside in a room. It will not only make the room smell lovely but the color and the flavor of the herb will still be there. 

It might take a long time, between 1 and 2 weeks in total. But stored correctly afterwards you can expect to enjoy it for at least 6 months before the flavor starts to disappear.

How To Harvest Cilantro Seeds

Harvesting the seeds from the cilantro plant is mostly an act of patience. We need the plant to start flowering and then afterwards begin to develop seeds. You need the flowers to get pollinated for this to happen, so keep the plant outside to make it happen.

Let the seeds by themselves develop and fall off. Taking them too early ight make them viable to planting and getting new cilantro plants.

How To Harvest Cilantro That Has Flowered

Harvesting cilantro that has flowered is no different from one that hasn’t flowered. Cut off stems with leaves just as you normally would. You could even take some of the flowers too, they are really tasty and provide some nice spiciness to a salad for example.

How To Harvest Cilantro Without Killing The Plant

The best way of avoiding killing a cilantro plant when harvesting it we just need to adjust the amount we are taking. We often recommend that you don’t take more than about 1 third of the plant at once. That way we are keeping the plant able to grow back once again.

Will Cilantro Grow Back After Cutting

The cilantro plant will definitely be able to grow back after cutting the plant. Just make sure you aren’t taking too much at a time. Place the cilantro in a very sunny spot afterwards and water the soil slightly too, that way it will regrow rather quickly.

How To Dry Cilantro And Store It

What Is CilantroHarvesting CilantroPreserving CilantroStoring CilantroDrying CilantroConclusion

Being able to store the harvest from your plants is very important to know. Thankfully it’s very simple to dry and store cilantro. The plant does not take that long to dry and will keep very well if you find a dry spot to keep it in. The secret being to keep moisture away from it to not have it start to mold.

Storing fresh cilantro plants is best done in the fridge. After harvesting the stems they will begin a process of wilting. But to slow down this you should try and keep them cold as much as possible and in a dry environment too. In a container with some kitchen paper is our go-to.

What Is Cilantro

Cilantro is a very common herb that a lot of people like to have in or with their food. Most commonly perhaps used in Mexican food. It’s a great addition to spicy food as the flavors play really well off each other.

The cilantro plant is very easy to grow at home since it won’t require that much effort to care for. The plant will be able to grow in a number of different places. But the plant prefers a soil which is well draining but never left to completely dry out. 

Try to fertilize the soil every now and again to boost the potential harvest of the plant. We often see that the plant will feel even better if it gets a lot of sunlight each day. About 6 – 8 hours or so is a good amount to aim for.

Harvesting And Drying Cilantro

Harvesting cilantro is really easy to do. The plant will be able to relatively quickly grow back the stems that it had before you harvested. We recommend you only cut back about 1 fourth of the plant at most.

Try to cut close to the main stem to treat the plant the best way. These stems should be put on a flat tray and then slowly dried in the oven at a low temperature.

This is the best technique to use if you don’t have a dehydrator at home already. It will keep all the flavor of the cilantro as we are drying the plant at a very low temperature. To store the cilantro a little bit more efficiently you could crush it after it has been dried completely. Keep it in an airtight container and at room temperature. This will keep for at least 6 months. But if you are any like us, then it will probably be finished well before that.

Preserving Cilantro For Long-Term Storage

The best way to preserve the cilantro for the long term is by drying it. If you follow our techniques and methods here then you will have it able to keep for at least 6 months or so.

Some other ways of preserving the cilantro would be to either make oil from it or a pesto. Blending the cilantro with just oil and then freezing it will keep for a long time. But making pesto might be the best route. It keeps very well in the freezer and wont change that much in flavor once you defrost it.

How Do You Store Dried Cilantro

Storing cilantro that has been dried might be one of the most important things we need to get right. If there is moisture getting in contact with the dried herbs then it will create an ideal place for mold to grow.

To avoid this we recommend you using an airtight container and storing this in room temperature away from stoves or fridges.

Techniques For Drying Cilantro

There are many different ways for drying cilantro to keep the flavor of the herb for the long term. Below are some of the possible methods that you could use, we provide you with several so you can find the one that fits the best for you.

Air Drying

Air drying is probably the most simple way to dry the herbs. We do this by tying a bundle of cilantro with some string. Tie the bundle to something so it can hang freely and dry from all angles.

Depending on the size of the bundle it should dry between 1 – 2 weeks or so. Keep it away from stoves or fridges as any form of moisture that reaches the herbs will just slow down the drying process.

Oven Drying

Drying in the oven is a really fast and easy method to use at home. Simply put the oven at the lowest temperature possible. Lay the cilantro flat over a tray with some paper underneath.

Place the cilantro in there and let it dry. It should take around 6 – 8 hours depending on the size of the cilantro.

Microwaving Cilantro

Microwaving cilantro is perhaps the hardest one to do. Much because if you do it for too long it might instead just turn burnt and smell off. 

We recommend just microwaving the cilantro in small bursts at a time. Do this until the cilantro is crispy and completely dried.

Dehydrating Cilantro

This is probably the most expensive option to take. It works much the same way as drying it in the oven. But instead we are using a dehydrator. These can be rather expensive if you want to buy one that will last for many many years.

Dry it at a low temperature until it’s completely dried. Store it afterwards in a very airtight container in room temperature.

Conclusion And Takeaways

Drying cilantro is best done in the oven or outside tied like a bundle. These are the least impactful methods to the flavor of the herb. Any herb that is drying and losing moisture will shift slightly in taste. It will especially do this if the temperature is too high.

Low and slow wins here. Done right you can keep the dried cilantro for at least 6 months in total before it starts losing flavor and aroma.

What Is CilantroUsing The StemShould You Use ItIs It HealthyAlternativesSummary

Cilantro is an incredibly tasty and versatile herb to use in the kitchen. It’s one of those plants though, that you either love or hate. Nonetheless the most flavor of the plant will actually be found in the stem. The leaves are very tasty too, but the stem is where the action really is. 

You can make a number of different recipes with the stems of cilantro. One of our favorites being salsas or green sauces with it. Perfect as a condiment for something a little bit spicy.

Cilantro Plant
Cilantro Plant

What Is Cilantro

Cilantro is a very aromatic and herbaceous plant that is both commonly found on restaurant menus but also in people’s gardens. Since it’s a fairly easy to grow plant this means it’s a great beginner friendly one to start out with.

Cilantro basically just needs a soil which is well draining and kept slightly damp. This will help promote root growth which then turns into more leaves being able to grow as more nutrients are coming from the roots.

Find a relatively sunny spot to plant your cilantro and enjoy the bountiful harvests you will get throughout the whole summer and early autumn. Depending on your climate, it will determine the season for your cilantro plant. But when you are starting to see it wilt a little bit, you should get it down completely. Now is the perfect time to use those stems that are on the plant.

Do You Use The Stem of Cilantro

Like we mentioned in the beginning, the stems of the cilantro plant is a great addition to use in your cooking. This is the most flavourful part of the entire plant so of course we want to use that too.

The stems are often a little bit crispy, so for the most pleasant eating experience you should thinly slice them. This will help produce more surface area and in turn a little bit more aroma and flavor.

Some of the best recipes you could do with the stems are green herb sauces or salsa. Mixing cilantro and oil into a rough paste will make for a very nice condiment for your meal. We especially like to use it for some more spicy food. The flavor of cilantro really goes well together with that.

Should You Use The Stem Of Cilantro

If you are looking to get the most nutrients from your cilantro plant then you should definitely be using the stems of the plant too. The leaves are really tasty as well, but the stems pack more of a punch.

There have been a number of reports showing that cilantro is very rich in antioxidants. This means that a good intake of cilantro should make it less common for you to get sick with colds or fevers. Antioxidants are great at preventing that. So since the stem of the plant has the most nutrients they should definitely be eaten too and not thrown away.

Are Cilantro Stems Healthy

The stems of the cilantro plant are very healthy. They are really a great addition to a meal. The crunchy and flavorful character of them makes them a favorite in our household.

The cilantro plant is very rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Just 2 teaspoons of cilantro will be enough to cover 1 third of the Vitamin K you need. The antioxidants help improve the immune system of your body too. This makes it less likely that you will get sick with colds or fevers anytime soon. Antioxidants greatly help the white blood cells in the body, which responsibility is to attack inflamed areas in the body.

Alternatives To Cilantro Stems

There are a lot of different herbs out there to choose from when cooking. With cilantro you will either love the herb or not at all. It’s pretty interesting that about 10 % of the population has a genetic thing where the taste of cilantro is repulsive.

So substitutes for cilantro stems could really be any other herb with nice crunchy stems. The first that comes to mind would be parsley or basil for example. These are really flavorful and tasty herbs to use in cooking too. They look and will work much the same as the cilantro stems.

We also use basil and parsley stems in salsa and green sauces. They add a nice sweetness to it on top of just being very tasty herbs.


So let’s conclude this small article about using cilantro stems. We have concluded that the stem of the plant is probably the most flavorful part of it. That means we should definitely use it in cooking. It’s nice and crunchy when chopped and added to a salad. 

But in a green sauce or salsa it’s great. It brings it to another level. The antioxidants in the cilantro will also help your body stay more healthy as it can easily fight of sickness like fevers and colds.

Cilantro has been used for centuries in cooking and medicinal purposes. The highly aromatic and flavorful herb is a great addition to any garden at home. It’s not all for nothing that this is such a valued herb. It’s rich in a lot of important nutrients like Vitamin K and antioxidants. 

It’s easy to grow it and will provide you with plenty of harvest throughout the year if you grow it indoors. One of the best ways of enjoying this herb is by making tea from it. This makes for a very flavorful and aromatic beverage, filled with all the benefits of the cilantro. Below are some of our favorite benefits to drinking this.

10 Great Benefits To Drinking Cilantro Tea

Vitamin K

Vitamin K can be found in a number of different herbs and plants. But in cilantro it’s very concentrated. This means it’s easier to get your daily needs with a fairly small amount. Just 2 teaspoons will provide you with over ⅓ of your daily needs. 

Vitamin K is what the body needs to perform proper blood clotting, but it also aids in making your bones stronger. It helps maintain the bones and reduces the risk that they will break as you get older.

Quercetin is getting quite a lot of attention in recent times. It’s being researched that this property can help the body be able to not get sick as much, basically protecting the body against disease.

This nutrient is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It makes the body healthier and it is believed it can help high performance athletes and military personnel. Drinking cilantro tea about 2 – 3 times a week will be plenty enough to get these benefits.

Diabetes Management

Cilantro can actually help people with diabetes. There are properties in the herb that will make the body basically use up more of the sugar in the body and convert that into energy instead. 

This lowers the blood sugar level and reduces the risk of high blood sugar levels for diabetic people. It can also help with the blood pressure in turn, lowering it at reducing the risk for heart disease too.


There has been testing with animals that eating cilantro can help detox the body from harmful heavy metals. It basically rids the body from these by binding them in the bloodstream and making it easier for them to go out.

This will in the long term reduce the risk for disease and sickness. It should be mentioned that there is yet to be any concrete research published yet on this for humans.

No More Heavy Metals

If you read the part above here then you would know that cilantro could potentially help rid the body of heavy metals. Metals like arsenic, lead and mercury can stay in the tissue in the body and greatly increase the risk of heart disease. 

What the cilantro basically does is help bind these metals together, making them start loosening up and releasing from the tissue. The body can now isolate these metals and rid them from the body. 

Reduces Anxiety

Prolonged and continued stress is related to a number of different serious diseases. It could affect the heart or the brain. In short, too much stress for too long will leave long term effects. 

The quercetin in the body helps protect it against oxidative stress. The high concentration of antioxidants in cilantro helps with defeating and reducing the level of free radicals in the body. Those are the culprit for inflammation and stress. Drinking cilantro tea and making that a habit seems to be able to create some serious long term benefits.

Cilantro Plant

Heart Health

It’s been researched that cilantro can actually help the body reduce cholesterol levels. This means that the risk for heart disease is not as common anymore. Some cardioprotective nutrients in cilantro can also help prevent oxidative damage to the body. That is specifically associated with some heart related diseases.

The amount of cilantro you need to consume for this to be affected is still being disputed, but drinking tea made from about 2 – 3 times a week might be the magic amount.

Protects Against Food Poisoning

Drinking cilantro tea seems to not only be effective against reducing the risk for heart disease, it can also help detox the body and reduce the risk of food poisoning. The antibacterial properties of the herb will make it less likely to harm your body.

Food or waterborne disease will not get a grip of your body as it has a good enough protection against these things now. A fun fact is that just 2 teaspoons a day of cilantro seems to have a significant impact on the body this way.

Skin Irritation

Cilantro has not only been used in food, it’s also been used for medicinal purposes. Nowadays it can be quite common to find it in some skin care products. Applying it will help soothe the effects of some allergic reactions.

If you get stung by nettles for example, applying cilantro can help mitigate the pain and reduce the skin irritation. It can even help against sunburns. The antioxidants in the herb is what makes this all possible.

Protects Against Colon Cancer

Since cilantro is able to help the body lower cholesterol levels, this also means it’s possible for it to reduce the risk of colon cancer. There is still research to be done on this topic as the amount you need to consume hasn’t really been decided.

But drinking cilantro tea on a pretty regular basis will definitely start whosing results. We try to do it about 2 – 3 times a week. So not an exaggerated amount, but enough that we feel it has an effect.

Cilantro Tea – How To Make This Refreshing Drink

salad, cilantro, cooking-2850199.jpg

What Is ItCilantro TeaPairing With Other HerbsHealth BenefitsFAQ

Cilantro tea is a great option if you want to enjoy some of that havrest you have at home. It’s refreshing and very aromatic, the perfect summer drink really. Since the cilantro plant will grow pretty quickly, I will never not be able to make this tea from the fresh leaves.

It’s rich in nutrients and some very interesting properties that make cilantro a great introduction to your diet. With antioxidants and vitamins, it really is a superfood. The tea is simply made by steeping the fresh leaves in warm water for a few minutes. It will release all the nutrients and leave you with a powerful tea to drink.

What Is Cilantro

Cilantro is a pretty common herb that is grown by a lot of people. It’s one of those herbs that you either like or don’t like. Some people actually have a genetic thing that cilantro more or less tastes like soap, but it’s for a small subset of people this applies to.

It’s been used for many many years and provides a very aromatic option to your food. It will taste the best when it’s still fresh. Unlike thyme or rosemary for example, the quality and flavor of cilantro really goes down when it’s dried instead.

Growing the cilantro is very easy. It likes areas where there is a lot of sun during the day. But the soil should be pretty well watered all the time to help support the plant during the summer. Make sure the soil is well draining too, meaning that you shouldn’t see any water pool at the top of the soil.

Cilantro Plant
Cilantro Plant

Making Your Own Cilantro Tea

Actually making the tea is very easy. Like we mentioned previously, the best type of cilantro will be fresh ones. The dried cilantro really doesn’t taste that much, instead we find it much more rewarding harvesting your own and making tea from that.

Let’s look at the steps we take to making cilantro tea:

  • Pick about 2 – 3 large sprigs of cilantro
  • Boil about 2 cups of water
  • Pour the water of the cilantro and let it steep for about 2 – 3 minutes
  • Strain it and add a small amount of honey if you wish to have some sweetness

This will produce a very nice and fragrant tea for you. But we want to stress the fact that it should be consumed while still warm. It will taste much better, but the nutrition in the tea will be richer like this. Waiting for it to cool down will instead let some of the beneficial properties go away, at that point you might as well just drink water instead.

Pairing Cilantro With Other Herbs

Cilantro is a very aromatic herb that goes very well with other plants too. It wont take over and will instead just leave a more aromatic and flavorful tea if combined. Some of our favorites to pair with are thyme and basil. 

Neither of those will take over the flavor profile, instead just make a very well balanced tea. We like to divide cilantro, thyme and basil equally when making the tea, one third of each. The recipe we use is the same as the regular one, steeping the herbs in warm water for a few minutes and then straining it.

The Health Benefits Of Cilantro Tea

We mentioned in the beginning that cilantro is actually very rich in nutrients, some of these being vitamins, but especially antioxidants. These antioxidants are very important to have in the diet, it protects the body against the risk of future sickness, like colds or fevers. 

Antioxidants are meant to help mitigate “free radicals” which causes inflammation (headaches, joint pain). This makes it very valuable to have. Luckily you will get more than enough of the dose if you drink cilantro tea about 2 – 3 times a week.
