How to Grow Celery at Home

Things You’ll Need:

  • Knife
  • Fresh Water
  • Fresh Celery
  • Small Pot

Instructions:

1. Cut off the Ends

Take a sharp knife and cut the bottom of the 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 or two 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 couple of days, and within a week, you may see small leaves and stalks with tiny roots emerging on the base.

A Few Tips

  • Fertilize your celery in water with a pinch of balanced fertilizer.
  • You can also feed it with organic worm casting tea or aquarium water.

Optional – Plant the Base in a Pot

If you want to have a big celery plant, transfer water-grown celery into 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. Optionally, 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 the partial or filtered sun in the beginning.
  • Keep the soil moist.
  • Once the plant emerges and establishes itself, you can start keeping it in full to part sun.

  1. I am a novice and am so interested in growing my own beggies.
    I am trying celery today.
    Thank you,
    Linda Wraight.

  2. I STARTED PLANTING 2 CELERY STOCKS CUTTING A INCH OR SO FROM BOTTOM. I STUCK IN WATER AND NOW HAVE ROOTS IN BOTH! NOW LOOKING TO SEE WHAT TO DO WITH THEM NOW! THANKS

    • Linda, I continued to grow mine in water; this is my first time. I was so surprised when I saw some black little swimmers in the water. My plants in a clear vase. I don’t know what to do; the “swimmers” get bigger daily; today they look like small tadpoles. I kind of want to watch them until I have to throw them out. There are about 50 “whatevers” in there! Let me know how you do!
      If anyone else has had that experience, please let me know.
      Thanks
      Kathy

  3. Awesome. A few questions…,
    How long does it take to complete the growth cycle?
    Was the bunch in the photo grown in water?
    How much bigger does a plant grown in soil differ from one grown in water?
