Re-growing Herbs at Home

Plants never stop to amaze me, I have recently figured out how easy it is to grow/re-grow herbs at home – it’s so simple!

So I had bought some fresh oregano and thyme. These came with roots cut. I used to always cook/use up whatever I want to use in these herbs (leaves, tender stalk, etc) and discard the remaining parts. I’m trying to practice sustainable, eco-friendly living by making a few changes as and when possible. This time I left a few leaves on the stems and dropped them in water jars (the lower leaves need to be removed as they may rot in the water). I did not realise this then and had many lower leaves rot 😦 but that’s okay, we learn best from our mistakes 🙂

I kept these jars in the balcony, which is east-facing. Ideally a bright spot (not direct sun) should have been nice, but that wasn’t a problem and these little greenies grew roots and new leaves even just within a few days!

I’ll put them in soil and pot soon and see how it grows.
