What I find odd is that people say onions don't multiply, and that is the opposite of what I always thought. Missed onions on the field often used to grow fast in the spring and multiply (4-5) and we used them as green onions (in my grandmother's garden). They were from what I remember the red onions, not sure if the white ones did or not.
You are right. Onions do multiply sometimes. For some reason I find that really cool. In fact I've got some leftover 2017 onions in my garden now. I'm hoping I'll get babies.
