      Re use green onions as a Science experiement

    • Magnolia

      To grow or make green onions last longer, cut them then put the bottom with roots in a jar with some water & watch them re-grow! Updated Tip: Make sure you change the water daily! And after the first time of watching it grow again and using it, I’d suggest planting it in dirt to let it fully regrow the third time. A great science lesson for kids!
