This is what you need:
5 liter-plastic bottle
a pair of scissors
Start by cutting the neck off the plastic bottle.
Cut some holes in it, with the scissors. The holes should be big enough for the onions.
You then make sure the onion sprouts are positioned through the holes.
Put layers of soil and sprouts, adding them until the bottle is full.
Water the soil and set it on your windowsill.
You can add the neck back on (simply tape it around) or leave it like that.
In no time, onions will sprout out the bulbs, while you can watch them grow, and eventually flavor your dishes with them!
