We’ve had this cilantro plant growing around the beginning of this year, it’s doing the best out of all the herbs growing at my house. However, recently it’s started to fall over, I’ve tried giving it water from a spray bottle to make sure it’s receiving enough moisture, I’ve left it out in sunlight for a longer period, but it hasn’t held itself up. Has it grown too large and need something to hold it up now? Or should I transfer it to a Slightly bigger pot to allow the roots to spread out some more? From what I know, the current pot it’s in has a 7 inch diameter and is about 5 inches deep. We have another one that’s 8 inches in diameter and 5 inches deep, and one thats 11 inches in diameter and 10 inches deep, however we were hoping to save that one for a habanero plant we’ve started growing. Any suggestions would be appreciated! I’m still new to all this gardening business and want to make sure I’m giving my plants the best treatment.
It doesn't look like it needs a bigger pot, but cilantro grown indoors does lean over, usually towards the light, and yours probably isn't getting enough light if that's where it usually lives. I can see what looks like a couple of roots on the surface of the soil - if that's what they are and they're attached to the plant, they should be in the soil. If the plant has been in the same pot since the beginning of this year, I cannot think of a reason why there should be two roots sitting on top of the soil though, but if you can without damaging the main roots, try to bury those in the soil. Otherwise, move it close to the window and rotate it daily, or cut off the top 1-2 inches to encourage new, hopefully more upright growth from the base.
