How to grow celery in a vase
Celery (Apium graviolens) can be easily cultivated as well as in potted gardens. You can start from the seeds, not only from the seeds but also from a discarded stem.
To do this, remember to keep the base of a stalk of celery (which you would normally have discarded). It is evident that we recommend starting from certified celery in organic, as it is one of the most treated vegetables with pesticides.
To start, using a normal knife, you will have to separate the base from the rest of the celery stalks (calculated a thickness of about 5-6 centimeters). The base should be placed inside a deep dish, filled with water. After about a week, the first shoots and the first rootlets will start to appear. The dish water should be kept clean by replacing it periodically until you carry out a transplant in a vase. The soil must be organic with the addition of natural compost. The plant must be kept in a bright place inside the house or outdoors (if temperatures allow it, so never in winter) but never under direct sunlight and irrigated to keep the soil sufficiently moist.
We advise you to take very deep pots, to fill them up to 10 cm from the edge and to use this empty space for the subsequent technique of celery bleaching. In fact, it will be enough to add another pot to the pot afterwards. In this way the celery will take on a whitish color due to the absence of synthetic photo activity and a much more pleasant taste due to the absence of chlorophyll.
