  7. The leaves don't look like dill *or* cilantro as I know them, and I've never seen cilantro in flower but am thinking it almost has to be the answer :) Very pretty photo, ISG!

  8. Everyone who took a shot guessed it right.

    Sandeepa, Suganya has a tip on how she does it. I just threw a few in the dirt after rubbing them in the palm of the hand a few times. Thats what H's aunt who gave it to me asked me to do. They seemed to come out fine.

    Asha as Corriander matures the leaves turn thinner like you see here and then they start to flower.

    Linda, they turn pointy and thin when they mature.
