Used to live with my parents, a noisy sister, a dumb dog, and an overconfident cat in a house makes me feel a bit lonely now living 11,349 kilometers away from home. I would say to live in a city called Hasselt now is better rather than to live in Brussels. The city is quite, but I can get all the things I need. However, when I come home, everything is different. I live alone, I cook only for myself, and no other living thing in my place other than me!
To have a dog or a cat in my place now is a bit hard for me as I have to walk my dog out because the condition is different in here. At home, my dog and cat can just run everywhere around the house. They can even have secret place to hide in our garden.
Then… I was thinking to have plant in my place. But I’m not a very caring person. I definitely will forget when should I change the soil, when to water them, etc.
I shared this thought with Mas H then he gave me this link. Then I found what I need! Scallion! To cook Indonesian foods, I sometimes need scallion. So what I did is I went to asian market to find the scallion. Why asian market? Because in most supermarket here, the roots of the scallion have been removed. While the one I can find in asian supermarket is not.. 😀
And yes, it magically regrows themselves in only couple of days 🙂
Grow your own vegetables!
What do you need to start?
- Three or four scallions (depend on how frequent you use the scallion)
- A small cup / glass
- A small space near window so that your plant will receive enough sunshine.
This is how my scallion looked like on the third day after I cut two of them:
After couple more days, I chopped another stalk and put them back in the water. And here’s how they look like after two days:
Scallion is really easy to grow indoor. You just need to change the water every two days and you don’t need to wait for couple of weeks to see them grow.
Hope you find it to be useful! 🙂
