Thank you for the wonderful ideas!

I am going to try some of your methods! I am copying and saving your post.

Yes the lettuce from the store grows and is crisp and it does NOT grow a root. It just seems to draw up the nutrients from the soil and water it is sitting in. It has been weeks and still no roots. You can also keep lettuce a long time in the fridge by just sitting the root in water and covering loosely with a plastic bag with some air holes. A beet top does not make a root; just grows new leaves by sitting on the soil. Maybe in time there will be roots, but not yet on my plants.

Celery and garlic make a root quickly.
