Almost everyone knows that you can grow plants through seeds; they can be put into soil and grow just as they would outside in an indoor pot. However, a lot of people do not know that plants can be grown from clippings as well.
You can do this with herbs, such as basil; you can clip them and put them in water, and within about a week, you will see new roots start to take shape. Eventually, you could put the plant into soil to grow even more quickly.
You can do this with butter lettuce as well. Just cut it about 1 to 1 1/2 inches above the core base, and then put the core into a shallow dish full of water. After about a week, you will see new roots, and after two weeks, new leaves. You can then put it into the soil, and it will develop into a full head of lettuce.
Do you believe that you can do this? You can try it, and see what happens. Of course, at the end of the video, he wishes everyone a Happy April Fool’s Day and says that next time, people can join him for an actual DIY segment, so it is hard to tell whether this is for real. You will just have to put the lettuce core into some water yourself and see if it actually does begin to grow into a full head of lettuce. If it doesn’t work, you have been fooled!
