As long as they have heat while germinating, they should be ok with little light. However, once the seedlings have germinated, you will need to place them in an area with plenty of light.

This is my first time growing celery. I have started some inside my home and they need to be planted in my traditional garden. I have learned that they like to be moist and do not tolerate drought and need to be fertilized regularly to keep up with the nutrient needs. I have a friend that grew celery once and said the plant looked beautiful but did not produce. Is there anything else I need to know so my celery plants will produce? We live in an area that is windy and temperature varies. What is a good fertilizer for them and how often to apply? Is there any vegetable they should not be planted by?
The best thing you can do for celery is keep it watered well. They thrive in moist soil. As for fertilizer, compost mixed into the soil at the time of planting should suffice, but another during mid-season would hurt either. It grows well with most vegetables.

The celery plant can't "grow" in the sense of metabolizing and increasing its cellular structure in a simple water bottle (celery can be grown in a hydroponic set up, however,) but it's phloem continues to function for a period of time after it has been cut from the root structure, thus it is able to take up liquid from the bottle, which is why the leaves can take on color if you put coloring in the water, as in the famous child's experiment. Here's another interesting experiment: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/children/growing-celery-with-kids.htm
I have a red celery plant that just started flowering. Trying to find out if my plant will continue to grow after flowering or if I need to collect the seeds and start over.
To cool of temperatures will cause the celery to bolt. Planting to early is a likely cause also.
It will not continue to grow once bolted.
