What you need to grow cinnamon at home?

You don’t need a large piece of land to grow your own spices or vegetables. Urban gardening is now very popular.  All you need is a space with access to water and sunlight.  The other tools are always available in specialized agriculture stores or online.

You’ll need:

Cinnamon seeds:  They actually come from blackberries that the bush puts out in winter.  You can’t eat these, but they contain the seed for this amazing plant.

For the first growth you need small pots. As with most cases, to grow cinnamon at home you’ll have to start with an “incubation” period.

Medium size pots. Once the seeds have ripened, you’ll have to plant them in bigger pots. Keep in mind that the plant will reach about 120 cm when it grows. After that, it all depends on what you want and the space you have available.

Combination of acidic soil, Spagnum peat moss, and perlite. For this spice to develop, it needs a loose and sandy topsoil so that the water drains well. It’s also important to have a high content of organic material.

A well-lit place, however not exposed to direct sunlight. Cinnamon prefers humid climates. So if you want to successfully grow cinnamon at home, the area you place it at home is absolutely fundamental.
