Did you know, if a celery stalk lays side ways
in your refrigerater for any period of time,
the tips of the plant will try to start to bend up and grow????

*****GardenGuy_Gardener,
Just remember that when you have a plant in water, and it developes roots, those roots are
"water~roots", because they've been in water..

If you decide to pot up that celery, in dirt,
it doesn't have any dirt roots and may go into shock...
*from lack of ways to get food to it'self..*

So, maybe, since you're doing an experiment, try putting in some dirt, into the water, little by little... and when you finally want to change it over, put mostly dirt, but leave the dirt very watery... that way, it'll still be getting it's water fix, while it starts it's dirt roots..

And please keep us posted [gabby] on your celery adventures [critic] , we would really [Cool] love [Love] to [gabby] hear the out come of it.... realllly [thumb] [flower] !!!!

I definitely want to hear all about it. I would love to grow celery but it's a little warm down here.

Does the water/dirt roots apply to the ivy I'm rooting in water? How best shall I pot it up when the time comes?

I would almost have to say, sorta..
Ivy is a pretty hardy plant, and can adapt...

I would have to ask though, how long has the ivy been in water??????
Than may have a factor... if it has not been in there long, I'd say no..
It's when you keep it in the water for an extended amount of time.. and only has been kept in water..

I read that wild celery actually likes to grow in swampy or water logged soil. I've grown celery before from seed, but it takes a long time to get really big stalks. Some varieties are winter hardy in my zone 5b. The last time I started it from seed I dug some up and put it in an old litter pail (no drainage holes) with soil about half way up. I thought the sides of the pail might help blanch it too. It was still alive last year even with a drought and neglect from me. It's been three years now. I don't know if it'll come up this year or not.

It's supposed to be a bi-anneal, but I've never seen a flower or gotten any seeds.

Composting is more than good for your garden. It's a way of life.

Total water roots would be if you let stuff
sit in the water like wayyyyy too long...

If you do it early enough, they adjust nicely...

But thanks for letting [gabby] us know.. [kissies] [thumb] [flower]
