Updating My Growing Celery Indoors Experiment
I saw someone trying to grow celery from the stalk ends of store bought celery. They didn’t do so well but it got me thinking that it was a good experiment so I gave it a try for myself. It helped me get through a long cold winter actually.
Because I was a bit sceptical that this would work I started a second celery stalk end in water on March 4th. After a week in the water I placed it in a container of well watered dirt to see if it would root.
Yesterday was the 14th and it still looked healthy so I pulled it gently from soil to check for roots and to my amazement there were roots around the base that were just over an inch long. I was so happy I did my little happy dance and then replanted it into a bigger container.
I am going to try growing roots on celery in water again but this time I will keep the water changed and do a better job of cleaning the base before putting it in water. This may be why the second experiment worked when I put it in dirt. So I’m excited to see the new results.
Because I didn’t make my own video I thought I would look on Youtube and found a re-growing celery experiment that worked to show you what I did.
For my next experiment growing celery in water I will document it better, take pictures and create a video of my own to share with my friends, family and new visitors.
Let me know if you’ve done this and share.
