How To Grow Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a great spice to use both for cooking and various home remedies. Growing your own cinnamon at home is actually not difficult at all.

Depending on where you live, cinnamon can be grown outside in areas where temperatures never dip below 60 degrees F or indoors in all other areas. The cinnamon trees can grow 3 to 8 feet indoors, and up to 50 feet tall outside.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • cinnamon seeds or three-leaved cuttings
  • sphagnum moss
  • perlite
  • seedling trays
  • 12 to 14 inch pots
  • liquid fertilizer (optional)

The seeds take 14 to 21 days to germinate. Leave in seedling trays for about 4 months before transplanting to bigger pots. Indoors a well-drained, acidic potting mix is the way to go. Outdoors they thrive in sandy soil.

Very little maintenance is required. You do not even have to water them as much, because their roots rot easily. The first bark harvest should be after 2 to 3 years, then every other year. One healthy cinnamon tree, can be harvested for about 45 years.
