Soil: Use a well drained Organic potting soil mixed equally with sand and Vermicompost.
PotSize: 4 inch pot
Potting/Transplanting: The container selected must have proper drainage holes. To prevent water logging, cover the drainage holes with broken pieces of earthen pots before putting the soil. Transplant the sapling in a pot along with root-ball of original soil. Carefully place the plant in the middle of the pot & cover the roots completely with remaining soil.
Outdoors, coriander prefers a cool position and light shade and very well-drained soil. Coriander is most commonly grown in a pot - either in a little shade on the patio or on a windowsill that doesn't receive direct, burning sunlight in summer and which doesn't get too hot.
They require about 1 inch of water per week for best growth. Thin seedlings to 6 inches apart so that they have room to develop healthy leaves. Once the plants are established, they do not need as much water per week. Keep them moist, but be careful not to overwater them.
Water: During the spring and summer months keep the soil slightly moist . Water liberally, approximately once per week but allow for slight drying between watering. Remove any excess water from pot saucer. Keep plant dry during the winter months.
