Re-Growing Celery from its Base

Ok, for funsies I decided to try to re-sprout/re-grow celery cores, just to see what would happen.

Here in east Texas, celery will not grow properly.  We just don’t have a long enough time of cold weather.  It can be below or at freezing for a few days, but before the week is out it can be back into the 60s.  This fluctuation just wont do for trying to grow celery from seed.

I left more of the baby stalks at the center core than others do.  The one on the left is a half week older than the other and it has branched out some, after wilting over completely when I forgot to keep water in the cup.

The next step I expect to see is some roots to pop out of the base.  Once this happens, I will plant them in potting soil.

These two are yellow because they have been sitting on the kitchen counter and no direct sun reaches them.  Tomorrow I plan to put them out in the greenhouse, but I will need to check them daily to make sure they have water.

I will update when and if they progress.
