Cilantro Plants
Q.

Why does Cilantro after about two months gets a web around it

corinne.1959@yahoo.com added on June 25, 2012 | Answered

My cilantro sits in a south garden window. It does wonderful for about 2 months, then it starts to get little spots and then almost like a spider web goes all around the plant and it dies. This has happened twice but my other herbs do wonderful.

It is being attacked by spider mites. Spider mites tend to target weakened plants and cilantro is a notorious "weak" plant. Because it is quick to stress and bolt, it is also quick to attract pests. They leave the other plants alone because they are healthy and not stressed.
