Veggie scrap salad update in Nurture compost

Veggie scrap salad update. Growing from leftover stumps of lettuce and celery plant. Using @nurturecomposts. **Buy: ** Web: **

Regrowing lettuce or celery from the bottom of the plant - the stump. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Prepare: Leave about 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of the stump intact.

  2. Place in water: Fill a container or glass with about an inch (2.5 cm) of water. Place the stump, into the water, ensuring that the bottom of the stem is submerged.

  3. Provide sunlight: Place the container or glass in a location that receives adequate sunlight, preferably near a window or in a well-lit area.

  4. Change water regularly: Every few days, replace the water to keep it fresh and prevent bacterial growth. Ensure that the bottom of the stem is always submerged.

  5. Wait for regrowth: After a few days, you should start noticing new growth emerging from the center of the stump. The outer leaves may wither or rot, but new leaves will emerge from the center.

  6. Transplant or harvest: Once the new leaves have grown to a desirable size, you can either harvest them for consumption or transplant the regrown plant into soil. If transplanting, carefully plant the regrown lettuce or celery in a pot or garden bed with well-draining soil, leaving the new growth exposed above the soil surface.
