How To Regrow Vegetables From Your Kitchen

Potatoes

MATERIALS
1 sweet potato
1 yellow potato
Toothpicks
Mason jar or cups
Water

INSTRUCTIONS
Halve the sweet potatoes, and place cut side down in a jar filled with water. Use toothpicks stuck into the sweet potato to keep it slightly elevated from the bottom.
Place it in direct sunlight.
Replace with clean water every one to two days.
Once the potatoes have roots and sprouts (called slips) about 4-5 inches long, twist the slips from the potato, and set them in their own bowl of shallow water.
The slips will begin growing their own roots, and once they are one inch long, you can plant them in soil.

Lettuce

MATERIALS
1 head lettuce
Mason jar or cup
Water

INSTRUCTIONS
1. On a cutting board, cut two inches of the base of lettuce off.
2. Set the lettuce on its base in a glass with ½ inch of water, and place it in sunlight. Change the water every day.
3. After 5-7 days, some new leaves should have begun to sprout from the center, and roots should be forming. Transfer it to soil and you can begin harvesting leaves when they reach 6-8 inches tall.

Bok Choy

MATERIALS
1 head bok choy
Mason jar or cup
Water

INSTRUCTIONS
On a cutting board, cut the the 2-inch base of the bok choy.
Place the bok choy in a container with water and place in a sunny location.
Replace with fresh water every day or two. Use a spray bottle to mist the center of the plant for extra hydration if necessary.
With time, the outside of the bok choy will deteriorate and turn yellow, while the center will grow turing from a pale green to darker green.
When the bok choy has grown new leafy-growth at its center, transfer it to a container with potting mix. The container must have a good drainage hole.
Plant the bok choy deep, so only the tips of the new green leaves pointing up.
Place in an area that gets at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Bok choy requires a lot of water, so water generously.

Scallions

MATERIALS
1 bunch scallions
Mason jar or cup
Water

INSTRUCTIONS
On a cutting board, trim the base of the scallions, keeping approximately 2 inches of the roots and base intact.
Place the roots in ½ inch of water with sunlight. Change the water every other day.
Transfer to soil after 5-7 days or keep in the glass of water. You can begin harvesting when they are fully grown.

Onions

MATERIALS
1 red or yellow onion
Pot
Soil

INSTRUCTIONS
Trim the base of the onion into a cube, keeping 1-2 inches of the root base intact.
Plant the onion directly into soil with a thin layer of soil covering the cut top. To make room in your garden, you can trim the sides of the onion as only the center is needed for regrowth.
Harvest the onions when the green tops have yellowed and fallen over.

Ginger

MATERIALS
1 knob of ginger
Baking dish
Water
Pot
Soil

INSTRUCTIONS
Place the ginger in a baking dish and soak it in warm water for overnight.
Ginger roots grow horizontally so fill a shallow, wide plant pot with rich, well-draining potting soil.
If you want more than one plant, you can cut the root into pieces, as long as they are at least an inch long (each should each still have at least 3 “eyes”), and as long as each plant has at least 8 inches of its own space in the pot.
Plant the ginger with the eye bud pointing up below 1-2 inches of soil.
Water lightly (often, but not so that it is over soaked) and keep in a warm place, though not one with huge amounts of direct sunlight per day.
It will take a few months before the ginger is large enough to begin harvesting pieces from it.

    most of these are easier (less maintenance) to grow using seeds or seedlings, like lettuce, onions, potatoes, actually everything… You won’t need to soak the seeds or seedlings, just put it in the ground and let magic happen

  4. Zainab Travadi on November 14, 2019 at 5:33 am

    So damn easy

  5. Mariquanch 62 on November 14, 2019 at 5:34 am

    All of these methods show how to get more seeds, if you grow trimmings like this you wont yield and vegetables

  6. Malaika H on November 14, 2019 at 5:34 am

    You can grow everything

  11. Emma Davies on November 14, 2019 at 5:43 am

    It’s crazy that you can grow vegetables from vegetables

  12. Khadi D on November 14, 2019 at 5:44 am

    I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person who thought of Pan’s Labyrinth seeing ginger root or Harry Potter and thought that shiz was going to become some type of creature hybrid.

  13. Shimelis Ayalew on November 14, 2019 at 5:45 am

    So just water is the only thing necessary to grow most of our vegetables? Would it taste just like water instead of the real taste? Just curious…

  14. Zannatul Ferdos on November 14, 2019 at 5:46 am

    Onion don’t work

  15. Tacos Forever on November 14, 2019 at 5:48 am

    This did not work for me in my apartment. The onions I planted in my can did not drain the water but they soaked up the water making a slime. It was very bitter

  16. Bangladeshi Dubai blogger Mariam on November 14, 2019 at 5:48 am

    Nice

  17. sgamethinker on November 14, 2019 at 5:49 am

    This is from 5 minute crafts

  18. K D on November 14, 2019 at 5:49 am

    This does not work. I tried with onion, lettuce, coriander,…water goes bad. Then the stem or root turns into fungus. It’s all in the video.

  19. Lalit Ch on November 14, 2019 at 5:50 am

    I will do it also. Thank you so much!

  20. BZ Vctr on November 14, 2019 at 5:52 am

    But didn’t you use microoven? That’s odd🙃

  21. Йνкυוςiтηνε Оחε on November 14, 2019 at 5:53 am

    All this is not allowed in an apartment building. No use learning 😂

  26. Bree MAPLE on November 14, 2019 at 5:58 am

    I feel like that would attract bugs

    That’s great and all but what about the most important plant weed….just asking for a friend

  32. AnitaMelanie on November 14, 2019 at 6:07 am

    But does all of this really work?

  33. My work Channel on November 14, 2019 at 6:08 am

    Kudos for the Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you ever tried – Mackorny Easy Growing Blueprint (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for getting a bigger penis without the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my close friend Aubrey got cool success with it.

  34. Mbah Bujang on November 14, 2019 at 6:08 am

  38. Tariq Yousef Yousef on November 14, 2019 at 6:12 am

    Well the onion died and the sweet potato only leaves came no fruits.
    The green cabbage died too.

  39. Bugaboo Sh on November 14, 2019 at 6:12 am

    I doubt most of them are going to work

  40. CLAUDIA Warnerbros on November 14, 2019 at 6:15 am

  41. Tammy Atkins on November 14, 2019 at 6:15 am

  48. IGalactic HeroI on November 14, 2019 at 6:23 am

    Why use the plant to grow another if you can just use that plant it makes no sense

  49. Happy life by Usa on November 14, 2019 at 6:24 am
