How To Regrow Lettuce From Stem

“Learn how to grow lettuce from stems is a great way to save your scraps instead of throwing them out. Just simply place in a bowl or jar and change the water daily to watch it grow.”

Peace Fam!

I hope this post finds you well. Learning to grow lettuce from stem started as an experiment. I did not think it would work, but it did. It was quite easy ( as long as you change the water, daily). The steps are as follows:

  1. Grab your leftover lettuce, cutting the leaves to about 1 inch from the bottom.
  2. Place the remaining stem in a shallow dish of water ( about a half inch).
  3. Place near a windowsill or under grow lights.
  4. Change your water daily.

My best tip would be to use organic lettuce. The growing starts literally the next day. Halfway through, I had to change the container and remove extra leaves that were starting to spoil.
