Did you know that you can easily regrow your leftover green onion roots, and get many uses out of one bunch? Well you can, and you should!
It’s super simple guys, you really should give it a shot! You have nothing to lose by trying. All you need to start is the roots of your green onions, a container, a little sunlight, and some water. Set the green onions upright in about a half inch of water.
Be sure to replace the water in the container daily, to keep it fresh. After a few days, you will notice the roots beginning to grow, and the green onions sprouting out of the top portion.
After about a week, the roots should be long enough that you can transplant them in a container with soil. Be sure to space them out with at least several inches between the stems, to give the roots space to grow. Set the container in a sunny window and water every few days, or when the soil feels dry to the touch.
The above photo was taken after four days of growth in water.
Cut the green onions slightly above the soil line, and wait for them to grow again! I find that after three or four cuts, the green onions do not grow as well anymore. I have not experimented with fertilizing them to see if this helps.

Super easy and rewarding! If you give it a try, let me know 🙂
