Nature moves at its own pace

We bought two bags of our usual dou miao and noticed the small photos on the bottom left of the back label. Apparently, the sprouts could actually be re-grown by placing the roots and remaining stalks into a container of water.

The sprouts shot up at quite an amazing pace and after only seven days, they were ready to be harvested and eaten again. It’s unclear if the Totoro had any significant impact on their speed of growth.
