Grow Your Own Food in Water from Kitchen Scraps

A video on Facebook inspired me to grow the leftover fruit and leafy green vegetables in water bottles. I have tried lettuce, kales, chives and avocado nut. The instruction is very simple, and you will see the result in few days!
You will need your plants, water, a knife, some plastic or glass bottles. The fruit seed such as avocado nut will need some upholder, for example, toothpicks or wires.
See video for growing lettuce here.
Lettuce that forms round or cone shape can easily regrow from its base. You will need to cut of the lettuce leaves and leave an inch-or-to stem, placing the head of lettuce in an inch of fresh water. Make sure the water covers the whole base and put it in the sunny window. Replace the water every few days.
