Uneaten Food you can regrow in water!

food that grows

A major problem of food wastage is that we often just buy way too much than we need!

So if you’ve ever been guilty of chucking out the rest of your lettuce or unused herbs, we’ve got your back.

We no longer need to eat it once and chuck it away. These life hacks will leave you eating once and growing forever ❤ (ya welcome)

Here is a list of vegetables that you can LITERALLY grow in water:
We’ve also ordered them in relative difficulty! If you didn’t guess it already, the pineapple one is kind of hard (but still do-able!)

Shallots/Green Onion/Scallions
Probably one of my favourite herbs! Shallots are so tasty and are really easy to grow! Click here to find out more.

Basil or mint or cilantro/coriander

Fresh herbs are easily forgotten. So why not put them in some water and regrow them! Place them in some water and once the roots are long enough you can transfer them into soil so they can grow into a full on plant! Click here to find out more.

  1. This is so good I LOVE THIS. Although I heard the avocado takes like a year. That’s kinda sad. But I wanna try that and the herb one. The pineapple seems too good to be true. But thanks for posting !!

    1. The pineapple one is a bit of a crazy one and really requires patience and determination! I’ve heard it can take about 3 years! But if you’re look for more practical ones give the herbs a go 🙂


    1. Wow thanks! Let me know if it works out for you… I’ve tried a couple of the herbs and they’re definitely do-able… I’ve also tried the avocado and it sadly failed but would love to hear your experience with it 🙂
