- Take the bottoms of the scallions/the bulbs and place them in a short/shallow cup, mason jar, etc. (we used batman cups)
- Fill a couple inches with cool water.
- Place in a sunny place.
- Change the water every couple days.
- Snip off scallions as needed!
A couple tips--they will continue to grow and last for awhile (un-cut), but eventually they will start to fall over and/or die. They will grow back after snipping, but not as well, and sometimes they won't grow back and just die. You sort of have to see what they do. You should really only count on them growing back once. But they grow quick!!!
Seriously-look how fast they grow!
They grew even more after this picture, over time some started falling over because they were too tall. I did eventually use them all, and I actually have about 3 that are re-growing, little onions that could :)
I recommend you try this-at the very least you get a "buy one, get one free" sort of thing with your scallions! And it's a fun way to grow stuff easily in limited space. If you have any questions let me know!!
