    I did the same, waited way longer than a day to plant mine. I planted mine finally today - my first gardening act of the year!

    I've got one growing and I am seeing little nibs of brighter green but nothing has sprouted upward yet.

    I am actually doing this as I write. About a month ago, I cut the bottom off of the celery as usual. We have really had a warm winter here so I planted it. Nothing seemed to be happening. One day about a week and a half ago when I was checking the celery that I had planted, I saw a little leaf coming out of the very center of the celery bunch. Now it is about an inch and a half tall. I am a very proud momma. It is so neat to watch it grow. I have never, ever planted celery before so did not have any idea what would become of the cutting that I planted. But, "By Doggie" it works. I can't believe it. I will post a picture later when I get my camera out. Amazing.

    Attached are 2 pics of my celery growing from the root end that was cut off of a bunch of celery that I purchased from the store. I dehydrated the good part of the celery and planted the root end. The green leaves and ribs are growing at an angle as opposed to straight into the air, so when the stalk gets bigger, it might be laying on the ground. I will take pictures periodically to track its progress.

    That's cool! I've got a stalk in the fridge that needs to go into the garden before it's beyond saving.

    I really did not think that the celery growth would work. I used a stalk of celery from the grocery store and it had been cooled and misted in the store. So I did not think it had a chance to reproduce. Guess it fooled me.

    We will see if it keeps up the good work.

    I purchased celery a while back. I cut off the bottoms and put them in water. They sat in water for about a week and then I got around to planting them in a pot. They both were put in the same huge pot and both are growing and have leaves and all. How way cool!!

    I am very jealous. Mine never sprouted. I am tempted to go buy some more celery just to try it again!

    I trim a sliver off the root before I put it in water. I figure they recommend doing it with holiday trees so why not open up the root end for the celery.

    I have 3 sprouting right now since I use so much celery. One of them has fresh green nubs but they haven't grown past the cut. The other two are 1-3 inches high. I am so happy. I'm hoping to get several going so I can put them in the garden this spring.
