Growing micro cilantro is an efficient way to enjoy this herb's benefits all year round. A continuous supply of fresh baby herbs can enhance the flavor and nutritional value of meals.


Soak cilantro seeds for 8-12 hours prior to planting. You can also crush the seeds in your hand to improve germination rates. In a shallow tray filled with a sterile, seed-starting mix, sow the cilantro microgreens seeds. Evenly distribute the seeds on the surface. Press them gently into the medium, mist, and cover to retain moisture. Keep the moist seeds in a dark place for about a week to 10 days. Keep the soil consistently moist with regular misting. Once they grow an inch or two, move them to a spot under grow lights or near a window to allow them to develop some green color.


Cilantro microgreens can be harvested in two to three weeks from planting. They thrive with steady moisture and light. These factors contribute to lush growth, preventing legginess.

How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
