Learn how to grow indoors and maintain your regrown plants until they are ready for harvest. The accompanying photos highlight each step of the process, showing you what the root section, seed, leaf, stem, or other plant part should look like when you replant it and then what it should look like when it’s ready for harvest. Many of the featured vegetables can be regrown in water or in soil. Full instructions are supplied.

A diverse selection of large and small edibles—some that are quick to regrow and others that take a bit longer—are included, so you can decide what regrown foods are the best fit for your family. A few of the many plants featured include:
