Water Vs. Soil: Which Method Is Better To Regrow Green Onions?
Many home chefs regrow green onions, also known as scallions, by placing them in a small jar filled with water. Unfortunately, there are a few drawbacks to keeping them in water.
Regrowing green onions in a water glass requires constant water maintenance and changing, and tap water generally does not contain many of the vital nutrients that the plant needs.
Replanting green onions in soil instead provides a more stable and sustainable environment for their long-term development, plus sturdier shoots and more robust flavor.
Not only does soil provide essential nutrients for plant growth, but it also promotes better root establishment by allowing them to spread and anchor themselves.
In contrast, growing them in water may result in weaker root systems. Additionally, regrowing green onions in soil offers greater protection against environmental fluctuations.
