How to Grow Garlic Indoors




Garlic is one of the most use vegetables in my kitchen. They are very tasty in exotic dishes that need a little kick. And for my taste bud, that covers just about all the food I eat. Garlic has an interesting spiciness that isn't quite hot to the mouth, but spicy in a subtle way. If you've left your garlic in the fridge long enough you will would have seen the green leaflets grew. So you must have known it is that easy to grow garlic, right?



Below is how I grew / started my garlic plant.


What you will need: 
1) A to-go sauce container or a similar size condiment dish.
2) 6 cloves of garlic, with the rough side still on and not cut.

How to make your garlic cloves grow:
1) Peel the outer skin off the garlic cloves.
2) Set the six cloves of garlic side by side in the sauce container, rough side of garlic down.
3) Pour enough water in the container to cover just the bottom.
4) Set the sauce container by the window and water when needed.






It shouldn't take too long for the leaflets to grow. Pictured here are the results of 1 week's growth. Yes, garlic is easy and fast to grow. I chose the cloves that look a bit mature, solid - not thin.

Other than the nutrition facts for 1 teaspoon of garlic listed below, are there other nutritional values that I've missed?

Potassium: 11mg

    1. You can try starting them in water, like I did. I think you will be a lot more successful.

    1. You could have your constant supply fresh and organic if you start with just five, six cloves.

  3. This may sound like a crazy question, but what do you do with the garlic after the leaflets appear? Do you put the garlic into the ground so it will reproduce new garlic gloves? I know potatoes will sprout roots and I believe you put them into the ground to grown more potatoes. I'm not sure if that's right or not, but it's the general idea. Oh well...I certainly enjoyed reading & learning how to start garlic. :D

    1. I thought about that too when I posted this how to....lol. That was my plan! I wanted to put them in my backyard where I am growing some vegetables. Once they start getting plenty of roots, they turn into bulbs and not just a clove

  6. I also often use garlic in French food,Italian cuisine, or Chinese food. But maybe I don't use it in Japanese food often. So I was not aware how to multiply garlic. In increasing garlic, we can get new shoot of garlic
    and also use them to cooking. But the garlic shoot of your pics already can be eaten?
    Have a nice weekend!

    1. I try to use garlic whenever possible. It is amazingly tasty in salads as it adds a spicy taste that is unique from pepper.
