Green onions (Allium fistulosum L.) are widely cultivated crops known for their culinary and medical importance. In an effort to test the preferred growth conditions for green onions, over the course of 15 days, 1, 2, and 3 tablespoons (tbsp) of water were given daily to three groups of three green onion replicates, and the overall heights of the green onions were measured in centimetres (cm) using a ruler. Freshly cut stalks were planted in 4-inch pots with built-in drainage holes at the bottom and filled with indoor potting soil, with about 1 cm protruding above the soil surface. According to the One-Way ANOVA test, there is no significant difference between the overall growth of the green onions based on the volume of water given to them. Thus, there is no difference in overall growth between the green onion plants based on varying water treatment levels.
