I have tried growing onions for donkey years (as much I can remember even from childhood) Those where the days where it concerns science project where one pokes a nail through an onion and place it on a mug or container and see the roots sprouts.
Then later, I started planting those onion bulbs for their fresh green leaves to use for garnishing. Again it depends how long this plant last from bulb till the whole thing withers and dies.
One day, when I was in a wet market "pasar malam" a vendor sold a nice full bush of spring onion for a RM1. It took me almost 2 weeks for me to consume the whole amount, I had used it for salads, and mostly added for all the garnishing (till my taste bud tasted nothing but spring onions) I had reserved a bunch freshly by placing them in water.
Then, later a day became two and a week became 2 weeks and then almost a month, those fresh spring onion gave out buds and finally a full bloom flower - hmmmm.. Hopefully they turn into seeds that I can plant them.
I had ran out of soil and pots and they are now sitting in a temporary milk tin. Hopefully I manage to get the soil and pot by this week and help this plant grow, or may end up in my kitchen for soup or another garnishing.
Didn't know onions can have such a beautiful flower.
These are the moments where I spend time with nature, where in essence I find & seek God in my quiet time, and along the way came this chronicles of my tropical container garden.
