Growing bok choy from the stalk is pretty easy. Chop off the base of plant-like one would slice the base of celery. Then place the bok choy in a bowl of warm water with the cut side facing up. Now set the bowl on a sunny windowsill or any other sunny location of the house.

The water needs to be changed almost every day or in two. It is also important to mist the centre of the plant to keep it hydrated. Keep an eye out for changes in colour and texture. The plant will go through a change in a week or so. The outside of the bok choy will gradually deteriorate to become yellow. The pale green parts will slowly transform into the darker green.
