Are you a garlic lover trying to grow your own garlic to add to bread, pizzas, stews, or other home-cooked meals? Well, you’ve come to the right place for the right guidance

This article is going to teach you all about growing garlic at home with just water and a few garlic cloves.

Yes, you heard that right – just water and a few garlic cloves is all you need! 

How To Grow Garlic In Water Indoors In 5 Steps

Let’s begin, shall we?

In order to grow your own garlic, you must get a hold of these few items first:

  • Fresh garlic
  • Clear water bottle or a glass (make sure it is clear/see-through)
  • Water

The water bottle might sound like a strange one but it will make sense in just a moment. 

If you have a glass that you can use to grow the garlic, great! If not, take a plastic bottle and make three round holes in the side, as in the image above. Fill it with water almost to the top.

The trick is to have a container that’s wide enough to fit all the cloves around the surface so that one end of the cloves remains submerged in water while the other faces upwards towards the ceiling.

Once you have your hands on the right container that can fit all your garlic cloves, the next step is placing the garlic vertically and filling the container with water to the point where the bottom ends of the cloves are submerged and the other ends remain dry. 

I recommend using 1 plastic bottle for every 3 heads of garlic. However, if you want, you can make the holes closer together and plant more garlic.

In the first 2-3 weeks, some initial root growth may become visible. But, don’t mess with anything yet. All you need to worry about initially is changing up the water often so that the roots don’t develop bacteria or rot. 

It will take the cloves roughly 4-5 weeks to fully develop decent white roots, which is a sign for you to move on to the next step. 

The biggest advantage of using a clear container is that you can actually see the roots sprouting with your own eyes.

Once they’ve grown just enough, it’s time to transplant the cloves into the garden soil or at least a larger container with some real dirt so that the garlic can grow to full maturity. 

Remember not to ruin the roots while transplanting since they’re the most important aspect of the entire process.

Keep a very gentle hand while taking out the cloves from the container and planting them in the soil

So, growing your own garlic – not that hard, is it?

With just a few good cloves, small containers, and some water, you can grow garlic which will add a new dimension of flavor to your dishes.

Anything from simple bread to beef steak can be revived with a freshly chopped clove of garlic. It’s one of those things that don’t add much visually, but when you taste them… they’re there like RIGHT THERE!
