Root view – onion

We had an onion that started to sprout, but instead of using it or throwing it out, we decided to see if we could get the roots to grow…so we hung it over a tall glass vase of water, and watched over the course of about a week to see what would happen.

This was a really, really simple science project.

There’s a great series of videos and articles on the Science of Gardening at San Fransisco’s Exploratorium website. Interesting stuff for the budding gardener.
