I needed an onion for supper and we saved the bottom. Here are the beginning pics.
|The roots are very small and brown in color.|
|Onion placed in water.|
After two weeks, you can see the roots have really taken off.
|The kids are amazed at the growth. Egee is starting to change her mind.|
|A small bump is forming on the cut surface.|
|This pic shows the raised portion better.|
Today, we have decided to add two other onions to the experiment for comparision. We have added the cut off top of one onion that had already started to grow leaves and a whole onion that had started sprouting in the onion bag.
|The green spots are where I cut through the onion.|
|Green stems of the cut onion.|
|This is the whole onion. You can see the roots are dry looking.|
|The green leaves already growing on the whole onion before we placed it in water today.|
