Next time you buy green onions at the grocery store, cut them well above the root. I like to place them into a shot glass of filtered water. You can use another dish, but I find that the shape of shot glasses works particularly well with green onions.
In just a few days, you'll notice that they are starting to grow. See all of that new green growth?
A few days later, if you check on them, you'll notice they've grown even more! They'll just keep growing from there. When they get to a sufficient length, simply trim them down again so you can use the green onions - and keep them growing.
Sometimes I like to stagger planting the green onions by a few days. It's fun to see their progress side by side!
Every few days, you'll want to change the water they're growing in or you'll end up with rot. You'll notice that it gets cloudy - that's your clue to change the water.After a while, the onions just won't grow as well, but you can simply repeat this process again. It's fun every time!
