Caption: Onion buds. Close-up of a section through the bulb of an onion plant (Allium cepa) showing the developing buds. The bulb is the resting stage of the onion plant. It is composed of a short underground stem surrounded by scale-like leaves, with several central buds (green). These central buds produce upright stems which grow into new plants using the nutrients stored in the leaves of the bulb.
