I found this online, where if once you cut off the green parts, you can put the onion bulbs in water and they'll grow back.

We eat SO much of them, I figured I would give it a try to save some money.

I cut these off last Thursday. And you can tell where they are growing! The white outter part is where I cut...so all the green is new growth!

    I have a vase of these in my kitchen window ATM. :) I have cut them probably 3/4 times now and they are still regrowing each time, so far.

    So you just cut off little pieces when you need them? Do you have to  keep adding water? Do they need sunlight or do you  put them anywhere in the kitchen?

    I was going to ask the same question about cutting them.

    You have to change the water often, or it will start to stink.

    I put mine in a window seal with no direct sunlight. But maybe it does need direct sun, I don't know. Lol

    I want to  buy some  green onions just to try it.  I pretty much us ALL the onion though.  The only part left are the tiny, tiny ends with those "hairy" tops.  Do you think it will work with just those?
