The Q&A Archives: Parsely And Cilantro Is Very Tangled

Question: I started some Cilantro and Italian Parsely from seed about six weeks ago. I put about 4-5 seeds in each pod of an 8-pack container. The plants are growing well but they are extremely tangled and do not stand up at all. Is this normal? Will the plants be ok in the long run?

Answer: It is normal for these plants to grow together in a bit of a clump, and they will branch outward a bit, however they should be crisply self supporting. If the seedlings are inside, they probably need more light and they may need larger pots so that the soil stays evenly moist between waterings.
