Step 1: Fill the Soil Cup with potting soil.
Step 2: Dampen the soil.
Step 3: Mix cilantro seeds about an inch deep into the soil.
Step 4: If using your own bucket, drill a small drainage hole 1 inch above the handle. Note: Our buckets come predrilled for your convenience.
Step 5: Fill the 5-Gallon Bucket with water up to the drainage hole.
Step 6: Position the Soil Cup on top of the 5-Gallon Bucket in a shaded spot to prevent the seeds from drying out.
Step 7: After germination, move the Tomato Bucket to a cool location with bright indirect light to slow down bolting.
Step 8: A few weeks later, your cilantro should be ready for harvest! We recommend harvesting weekly to discourage bolting.
Step 9: (Optional) To ensure multiple harvests, add half a tablespoon of Osmocote fertilizer every few month.
Step 10: Water monthly until excess water flows out of the bucket's drainage hole.
