AT reader Nathan shared this photo with us and described it as the poor man's paper-white...

He has actually sprouted a red onion in water in a ramekin. We think it's absolutely beautiful: the fresh green sprout and the pretty purple hue of the onion. Even the rocks in the water are just perfect. (Thanks, Nathan!) The photo below shows the forced amarylis bulb at Maxwell's house this year.
