    This Super-Easy Green Onion Hack Is Blowing My Mind

    Why did I not know this sooner?

    A Trader Joe's enthusiast recently shared a really useful green onion hack that lets you literally regrow green onions from almost nothing:

    So, as someone who can't keep a plant alive to save my life, I decided to try it because I was a little skeptical.

    I placed the ends in a small glass (OK, fine, it's a shot glass) of water and set it on my counter. The video didn't say to put the onions in the sun or anything, so I didn't. Easy peasy.

    Here's what the onions looked like the next day:

    On the third day, the onions had soaked up a decent amount of the water, so I added a bit more.

    On the fourth day, I was completely shocked by how much they grew and greened overnight.

    I would say that by day five, they were ready and could have been eaten.

    But I decided to keep them in the water a couple of days longer because my life is so uneventful that waking up to check the progress of these onions was really giving me excitement.

    And on day seven, they were just BLOSSOMING. TRUE BLOOMING ONIONS:

    Anyways, you get it. This hack takes virtually no effort, is rewarding, and it works. I love it!
