Lettuce Can Be Re-Grown From Leaves!

Re-Grow Lettuce

Lettuce is relatively easy to grow from scraps.  Simply place your leftover leaves in a bowl with just a bit of water in the bottom.  Keep the bowl somewhere that gets good sunlight & mist the leaves with water a couple of times each week.  After 3 or 4 days, roots will begin to appear along with new leaves.  When this happens you can transplant the lettuce in soil.[6]
