Fun Experiment to Grow Green Onions (Part II)

Having experiment to grow green onion is really fun. My goal is to be able to grow its flower since I never see it with my own eyes, then I want to know what's going on after the blooming period. You will see these pictures and videos below as the results of my experiment.

The most interesting fact is I did not use any additional fertilizer. I only used the regular soil I had before from my old pots and watered them with rice water (I wash the rice before cook it and I always use the rice water to water my plants). Do you know why? I will share my own interesting story in the end of this post. So, please stay tuned for the next post (part III).
