patticakes43 is asking: (3 answers) question then off to cook. Can I place the bottoms of green onions back in water and they will keep growing? Sorry for the craziness. I don't cook with fresh herbs too often, but trying to be better about that.

Patticakes43,it's a bulb not a root,so it won't keep growing.You can keep it in the water,that is how my daughter keeps hers.Don't leave them to long,they get slimy.I just wrap mine in a piece of paper towel and keep in the fridge.Hope this helps.Happy cooking.

Supposedly you can put the in water and they will grow new tops. I tried it and ended up with slime and I did change out the water. It is always on pinterest but it didn't work for me.

i grow them all winter this way(on the kitchen bar)- change water every other day:-)- you can do it in the fridge -they grow slower

I had lackluster results but it did work. It's definitely worth trying.
