Cilantro Growing Out, Not Up

Zone 10 | Mila added on October 2, 2011 | Answered

My cilantro plants (growing in pots) are not standing up. Each plant has four shoots with leaves, but the main stalk doesn't seem strong enough to support the shoots. Is this normal?

It is not and your plants are becoming what is known as "leggy". This article will help you correct this (your plants may not be seedlings anymore, but the same issues that make leggy seedlings make leggy plants):
