If you’re anything like me and are avoiding supermarkets right now, you’ll be glad to know about one trick I use to stay at home. I’m sure you’ve heard that green onions can be grown from a very small front tip. But did you know that you can also turn half-rotted sprouted onions into new bulbous plants of normal size?

I use green onions so often that I always don’t have enough of them. They are stored in the refrigerator for a short time, their greens begin to fade within a few days. You can put them in a glass of water in the refrigerator to extend their shelf life a little, but this will only delay the inevitable.

To be honest, it is so easy to reproduce them that I am surprised that they are not very popular. It will only take a few minutes of your time, and in a short time you will have more onions than you expected. The best thing is that they will be healthy and strong, Unlike those thin things that you get by simply soaking the root in water.

Before we start, we had a great video that goes beyond a full-size bow. While we’ll also cover it here, it’s worth seeing how you can grow a normal-sized onion!

Green Onion Redemption

So, you divide the onion into pieces, plant and grow it… or you bought it on the market. In any matter, you have collected ready-to-eat green onions.

The first step is to use whatever you want from green onions… and save the root end.

But before you cut, take a good look at your ends. Let’s look at a few different possibilities that you may experience:

This end of the bow looks kind of sloppy. It is likely to grow, but it is not in the best conditions. The tuber to which the roots are attached is still intact and not too discolored, so new ones will grow on it over time.

It’s almost perfect. There is a uniform selection of the cut root material along the entire end, and they will all grow back. These are the ones that I will always try to save for the transplant. Such ends can usually be grown from 2 to 4 times without problems, because they are strong with small fleshy tendrils that easily suck up water.

It’s had better days. The root nodule has begun to darken and discolor, but there are still traces in some places. It may catch on, but if it does, then it’s probably only useful for one more growth.

With each softening, you will find an onion that has absolutely no roots. It may even seem that the whole end has been sliced. They won’t grow back, so don’t waste your efforts on them!

So now you’ve found potential healthy candidates. Cut off at the end a piece of the workpiece measuring from 1.5 to 2 inches. This is what you will start from. You can be shorter by up to 1 inch in length, but I think a little longer is better for regrowth.

Take these green onion tips and put them in cool water. Put them in a place where they will have a lot of light.

It is at this stage that the regeneration of the onion begins. Since it forms new roots and gives new green shoots, your only daily task is to rinse all the sprouted onions and change the water every day once or twice. The factory will take care of everything else.

You don’t want the water to become muddy, as this is usually harmful to your young plants. You want to stay as clean as possible, and you want to stay as clean as possible.

Try not to cover the tops of these new beginnings with water. They need air like water to survive!

For the next 3-5 days, change the water daily and rinse them, leaving them in a place with plenty of light. A sunny window or a well-lit room should do, but the more light they get, the greener they will become. You will see how a new development will gradually begin to take shape.

At first, the cut end will be slightly convex, then it seems to move apart a little. The new green material will begin to protrude outward. On the first sheet, your tip will still be cut off, but the new sheets will fall behind very quickly. After a week, you should have two stems, one with a pointed tip and one with a flat one.

By the end of this week, it’s time to plant all your toppings in the garden or use fresh leaves for cooking. If you are using, go ahead and remove the new growth just above the original cut.

For planting, you will need good quality soil or an affordable garden bed. The soil should be well drained, but at the same time it should retain a little moisture, since your onion is now doomed to abundant watering.

I mixed two types of potted soil. One of them is a seed starter mixture filled with worm castings and other excellent materials, but with a smaller particle size. The other is a mixture with a raised layer, in which there are many large pieces of wood or compost and composted manure. Wooden chisels retain additional moisture, keeping soil moisture longer in hot weather.

However, you don’t have to use a fancy mix if you don’t have something handy! Use what you have at your disposal. Even ordinary dirt in the backyard is suitable for this purpose. You’ll want to make sure it’s too much work and you’ll crash. It is best that it also does not dry out on the surface subjected to heat treatment.

If you place your starts at a distance of about every 6 inches apart, you will find that they will grow to enormous sizes. In fact, they may look more like leeks than green onions. They’ll be a little rough, but you can still eat them, and they’re good to cook.

But if you want more fresh green onions, I plant 2 inches apart or even closer. They will come together well and will not require a lot of space. Today I planted eight pieces in this pot, but in a few days I will add a few more in between, and by the end of the week I will be able to assemble my first batch.

This is a form of continuity-repulsion. If there is enough water in the pot for all the onions and enough rich soil, you can continue to add new green onions to the same pot, removing the old one. You can also go in and collect some leaves.

A new root end was formed on top, neatly cutting off excess root material. Don’t bump into that dark brown spot, you want it to be completely intact.

If you have several shoots connected at the same base, and they all have brown tips, you can also trim the old roots of the original onion. Then carefully trim the base, making sure that each shoot has a root end that you can work with.

Place this onion sprout in a cup along with all the green onion fillings. If it is viable, new roots will grow from its cut end. As with green onions, you need to rinse the onion sprout once a day and water it with fresh water. If new hardware starts to grow, check the root end to see if new hardware is starting to grow. If so, wait until this beautiful tuft of root tendrils reaches at least 1 inch and preferably 1.5 inches in length, and then plant it. It can take up to a week, and sometimes a little more. They have a large base, and since they make a larger onion, they will need more root material to survive.

When you plant your shoot, I like to plant it deep. You want to stick the greenest color above the floor surface. Since most of this shoot has remained moist and has recently been peeled, it is at risk of sunburn damage. Try to cover most of the white part. If you want, cover it to cover the remaining white parts, but protection from sunlight is important right now.

Make sure the soil stays moist and that your plant gets plenty of sunlight, and you’ll find a new onion to replace the one you lost. If you’re lucky, you’ll have three or four bulbs on the original onion, and you’ll get more than where you started!

As you can see, it’s pretty easy to do. I hope that by doing this you will try to stretch this time between visits to the grocery store. And even better, you will always have fresh and delicious shallots or onions grown by hand.
