So crazy, I really didn't believe it. I am a believer of things when I see them not just from hearing it. I started checking into different things regarding gardening, because I wanted to start a garden. I have never attempted a garden, because if all my flowers have died how would actual food stand up? It wouldn't have a chance. I am happy to say I AM growing a garden and it is getting bigger and just starting to bud a few things. I figured the only way I could start a garden is by buy plants that had been nurtured and started already for me. You know, so they would have a fighting chance. I have practically killed everything that I have tried to grow. Sad really.
I am not sure if there is a science to the whole celery stalk thing, but I did try it. I put a little bit of water at the bottom of my container and put my celery stalks bottom in it and left it alone. I did cut straight across and removed all of the stalk at the same time so it would be even. After a few days the middle started to grow up. After a few days around the stalk started rotting. I then cut off the outside, put it in a small cup in the window sill to get sunlight and nothing....everything started rotting. Not sure what I did wrong, BUT the point is that it works. Now, I don't know how apt I would be to actually eat the celery growing from the old celery....just because of that rot factor. If it didn't rot then yeah.
Have you tried this? Is there a better way to keep it growing without rotting?
