There are 2 ways to have your little tree: Seeds or Cuttings

If you decide to do it by cuttings, you will need a healthy branch from another tree, plant it and wait for it to root. You can do it in a pot and prune it little by little so that it keeps a small size.

On the other hand, if you opt for seeds, follow this procedure :

  1. Get the seeds and place them in a container with soil. Place it in a shady spot where it can’t get direct sunlight.
  2. You must water it regularly, 1 or 2 days a week, preventing the soil from becoming waterlogged and from drying out.
  3. After 4 months you should see the first shoots. If necessary, transplant it to a bigger pot (keep in mind that the larger the space, the larger the sapling will grow).
  4. Take the container to a warm place where it does not receive direct light, but is not shady either (it can be sunny).
  5. Following this process, you will get your first harvest in 2 or 3 years. It may seem like a long time, but it is short compared to other fruit trees.
  6. To use the cinnamon, peel off the bark from the branches. You can soak them and then let them dry.
  7. Finally, store the cinnamon in a glass container in a cool, dry place.
