How to Grow Celery at Home
Things You’ll Need:
- Fresh Water
- Fresh Celery
- Small Pot
1. Cut off the Ends
Take a sharp knife and cut the bottom of celery about 2 inches from the base. Consume the stalks and use the base for planting.
Tip: Always use a fresh celery base and not a stored one for planting.
2. Place in the Pot filled with the Water
Now, take a small shallow glass bowl filled with an inch of water and put a celery base in it. Keep this container in a bright area away from direct sunlight.
3. Keep an Eye on the Growth
Change the water every 3-5 days. The celery will begin to sprout in a day or two, and within a week, you may see small leaves and stalks with tiny roots emerging near the base.
Optional – Plant the Base in a Pot
If you want to have a big celery plant, transfer water-grown celery in the soil. For doing this, take a small pot filled with a potting mix.
- Cover the drainage holes of the pot with a coffee filter or paper towel, so the soil doesn’t come out.
- Fill the pot with a potting mix about 2 inches below the edge of the container. Add slow-release fertilizer according to the direction on the label. Moisten the soil with water and place the sprouted celery base on the top of the soil. Add more soil, so it encircles the celery base.
- Place the container in full to partial sun.
- Keep the soil moist.
