This tip comes from my reader Jen…
When you use your green onions cut only the green portion of the onion. Leave the white part and roots in tact. Then place 2-3 of the white parts/roots in a shot glass sized cup with enough water to cover the roots. Place in a sunny window sill. The green portion of the onion will grow back again, which means you can get more bang for your buck when buying green onions because you buy less often.
I have done this and keep 2 different containers going at a time, so I have some ready to go while next is growing. Fun for the kids to help with. I do change water about every 3 days and trim the roots if they get long. Otherwise, very low maintenance.
