CUT AND PLANT

Last week I bought a bunch of kangkung (Ipomea aquatica) and a bunch of green onion.
Both of the veggies  usually  harvested by pulled out whole of the plants.



We could find the root.
We only cooked the leafy parts, so we could grow the lower stems. 


 Those are  the kangkung stems


Those are the the green onion  stems.


I planted those stems on the beds one day later.
Look... the stems already grew.
This is four days after planting.


This is the kangkung rows four days after planting.
Look... the shoots are bearing from the leaf axils.




A cheap way to get new plants...new veggies.
Replanting...
Do you practice  replanting too?

  1. I have peeled potatoes that have small eyes starting and planted the peels and they grew. I haven't had thing grow so quickly as you have. I will have to try the onions like you grew and see what happens.
