It's so sad when they grow up and move out. This little experiment worked. It was about a month from start to finish. If I had to do it all over again, I would have put it in the ground after about two weeks but it kept snowing and/or getting stupid cold at night so I put it off. The only problem that I had was some of it started to rot where the sticks were but I think that could be avoided if it were put in the ground right after the roots started. So just save the end of your celery and you can get free stalks!
I scraped/cut off all the rotting or dead parts when I planted it. It seems like the only part that actually grows is the very center. So I might just strip everything away and just leave the very middle if I try this again.
I also, took the sticks out before I planted it. I didn't want the other vegetables to pick on him. Vegetables can be so cruel.
