    I've been growing some indoor herbs, and I've had good luck with both Sweet Basil and genovese basil - but not with Cilantro.

    The first batch of seeds I planted didn't sprout at all. The second set had one that sprouted - but it was always a sickly little thing, never seemed happy, and I finally put it out of it's misery.

    What does it take to make cilantro happy indoors? Is it just happier outside?

    i have never hd much luck with cilantro indoors. I think it is because it actually likes cooler weather. My early spring and late fall/ winter cilantro does much better than my summer crop.
