The Pinterest Report: Growing Lettuce from Scraps

Hello!

I should preference this Pinterest Report this that I am no green thumb. I'm proud I can even grow tulips (that pretty much grow themselves). I do have an Orchid that hasn't died yet, so I suppose that's something.

I saw this pin about growing lettuce from the left over scraps of a head of romaine lettuce.


So I thought I would give it a try. Can't be too hard. Put scrap in water and ta da, lettuce! I was a bit skeptical about if it would work. I was proven quite wrong.

Here is the lettuce after only a few days:




Here's my lettuce after a week and half. Pretty good! I have changed the water once. Now I just have to figure out what to do with it. Do I move it to dirt? Can it go outside this time of year? The posts I read were a bit sketchy about what happens from here. But I suppose I can just buy another head and start over if it doesn't work.
