~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dirt Goddess Super Seeds are fortified with Mycorrhizae, Beneficial Bacteria & Trichoderma for Superior Growth & Vigor. Organically!

Mycorrhizae forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of 95% of the worlds plants and it’s believed that plants were able to evolve onto land due to this symbiosis.

Colonization by mycorrhizae can provide multiple functions: increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, resistance to pathogens, increased vigor and yield.

It has been shown that the presence of Mycorrhizae can increase a plant’s absorption of certain nutrients which it cannot uptake on its own.

In most gardens and agricultural settings, the mycorrhizae is destroyed by tilling, the overuse of chemical fertilizers, and fungicides. The mycorrhizae must be re-added to the soil in order to benefit the plant.

Mycorrhizae is naturally 100% organic.

Story of this Seed:

Thanks and Happy Growing!


Growing Tips:

CULTURE: Herbs grow best in well-drained fertile soils, so a garden bed that is well prepared with plenty of organic matter will increase your chances of success. Maintain a soil pH of 6.5. After seeding or transplanting, keep the soil moist and well weeded. Monthly feedings of a complete fertilizer will produce abundant foliage with maximum flavor.

HARVESTING: For fresh use, harvest as needed. For preserving, harvest at peak maturity. For distilling, harvest when blooms are just beginning to appear. At this point, the leaves contain the highest level of essential oils.

PRESERVING: Drying is the most common way to preserve herbs. Hang small bunches from the ceiling in a dry, dark location with good ventilation. Drying usually takes between 1-2 weeks.

STARTING HERBS FROM SEED: Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks prior to transplanting into the garden. Hardy seedlings can be transplanted after the last frost and tender types after June 1. Follow the guidelines below for the most success.

1. Good sanitation practices are the key to good germination and growth. Always use a sterile growing medium and clean containers.

2. After you have sown the seeds, water them and cover the container with plastic or a clear dome lid. Remove the covering once germination is complete.

3. You must provide the proper warmth for germination. Never let the soil temperature go above 80°F or below 60°F.

4. Optimum seedling growth can be attained with indoor lighting fixtures in your home or greenhouse. See lighting supplies for information about all the lighting fixtures we offer.

5. Seedlings transplant more successfully at a younger age. When the second set of true leaves appears, it's time to transplant. Don't allow them to become leggy or root bound. Small seedlings such as thyme, savory, and sweet marjoram may be transplanted successfully in small clumps.

6. Harden off seedlings before transplanting into the garden by gradually exposing them to fluctuating light and temperature.

Ask a Question About Santo Cilantro ~Mycorrhizae Fortified/Bulk Available~

  • Answer this question

    Cilantro seeds take about two to three weeks to germinate. I wouldn't use a sprouting jar as cilantro hates to be transplanted, I would plant it right where I'd want for it to grow. With their hard shell, pre-soaking in warm water would be helpful, but be sure to save the water as it will be full of mycorrhizae! :)

  • Answer this question

    How long does it take Santo Cilantro to germinate in a sprouting jar? How long does it take to germinate in soil? Will these seeds do better if pre-soaked prior to sprouting? Thank you, in advance, for these details.
