Growing Sprouted Onion

Awhile back I found an onion sprouting beautifully in my pantry, and so instead of tossing it out, I planted it! Look how beautiful the green was! 

The sprouting continued and it grew leaves and stuff as the days went on, I got very excited, and impatient. I read somewhere that when the “leaves” start to wilt, it’s time to pull it out, and so I waited and waited forever.

Alas, imagine my disappointment when it came out and greeted me with a bunch of scrawny roots! Maybe I pulled it out too early? Perhaps the pot is not deep enough for it to grow? Not enough nutrients and minerals? Bah! What a letdown!
