Hi all,

Can someone tell me how I'm suppose to plant my pregnant onion. I think I did it wrong. I buried it in potting soil up to it's crown. What should I have done?

Please help.

I thought you were only supposed to put
the roots in, and then bottom of the actual
onion part sat on top of the soil like...

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

All mine were planted with the non green/bulb covered in soil, as they have grown the bulb has emerged out of the soil all by itself.

The onions are the dark green lines, but one row can be seen clearer, and only the greens are above ground.

This would be the same onions after about 40days, emerging on there own.

I have planted mine half in/half out of the soil.

Thanks guys. I think I'll do the half in half out so I can see the babies drop lol.

Watching for the babies is a lot of fun Tammy. The bulb gets a bump that just grows and grows. It is neat to see.

Well I probably have the cart before the horse so to speak. Mine is still a baby itself but someday it'll have babies. And then I can be a proud plant grandma.

Are we talking about edible onions or ornithogalum species?

Tammy, put your PG onion on top of the soil or about the bottom third under. If it needs help standing up that way use tothpicks around it if it's tiny or chopsticks if it is larger. (or twigs). After the roots take over those can be removed. They grow pretty fast once started and you will probably have babies within a year. And blooms too.
