I've been trying to regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps for two months now and some of them are actually growing quite well. I tried it with celery, leeks, lettuce and ginger. I thought they will grow a bit faster, but it might be the colder weather and lack of sunlight that is slowing them down (or maybe that's just the speed these vegetables normally grow at, I don't know:))
The only vegetable I'm not having any real success with is the lettuce. I guess I'm trying with the wrong kind (although I did try 3 different kinds) and it just starts growing the tall flowery part (or whatever that is called) and no leafs.
it looks like this:
So I was wondering, did anyone else try regrowing kitchen scraps and what was your experience with it? I'm thinking about trying it with other plants, but don't trust the general internet any more (since all of the regrowing articles claimed lettuce is perfect for regrowing:)) so I thought I might ask here first:)
