How to Grow Onion at Home: There are two ways to grow onion, one is by cutting the onion, and the other is using its seeds. In this post, we will grow onions using cut the bottom part of the onion, and there are many types of onions available in the market. This post is about red onion or white onion.
How to cut onion and plant: Cut the bottom part of the onions as shown in the photo. The Head part of the onion is where small and thin roots appear in the onion. The best time to plant onions is early winter.
Prepare a soil mixture: To make soil, take well-drained garden soil(40%), vermicompost (30%), and coco peat(30%), or you can also add perlite (50gm) and vermiculite (50gm). Mix it well. Take a flat flower pot, which has 2 feet in diameter.
While mixing the soil, remove all pebbles from the soil and make sure a drainage hole is necessary at the bottom of the flower pot. If there is no drainage hole in the bottom of the pot, so do it with any tool and keep small stones above the holes.
Fill the soil mixture(70%) in the flower pot and place the cut pieces of onions inside the soil ( 6 to 7 inches deep) and pour the remaining soil above the onion. After that, fill the water into the pot. Place this pot in the full sunlight. After 7 to 10, small leaves appear on the plants, and within 20 to 30 days, the plant grows up to 10 to 12 inches and more.
Remember: Soil pH should be 6 to 7 and soil should be slightly acidic
Top 4 Caring Tips: Initially, add water to this plant after 2 to 3 days, and before watering, check soil moisture in the flower pot. Moisture in the soil should be maintained. In the summer season, give water to this plant regularly and after 3 to 4 days in the cold season.

Temperature: Good temperature is most important to increase the growth of this plant. If onion pieces are implanted in the cold season, keep their pot in full sunlight because the onion plant starts growing quickly in the full sunlight. In the summer season, keep this plant in the full sunlight for 4 to 5 hours, or you can maintain a temperature between 15°C to 25°C.
Best Fertilizer: Best fertilizer gives large bulbs of onion. Chicken manure and Dr. earth’s 9000 Nitro Big is the best fertilizer for these plants. Always fertilize after 10 to 20 days or after leaves grow up to 6 to 7 inches, and after fertilization, fill water into the pot.
Pests & Diseases: There are many types of insects( black mould, Botrytis leaf blight, downy mildew, rust) seen in the plant and these insects damage the plant. To kill them, spray pesticide soap. Before spreading the medicine to the plants, always read the instructions on the prescription.
Harvest Time: The right time to harvest this plant is when the plant’s leaf has turned yellow or has dried up. Then you can gather them, or if you want, large bulbs of onion, so you can harvest them after 90 to 100 days.
After 90 to 100 days, the onion bulbs grow 1 to 2 inches. Harvest them correctly and after harvesting, remove all soil mixture in the bulbs. You get healthy and fresh onions.
