Onion Questions

I've planted some spring onions, red onions, and some chives in small 2in pots

They've all reached a stage where they're like grass, I've got about 10 of these stalk, and they dont appear to be doing anything now,

What do I do with them?

Plant them out. Onions and their kin have large root systems relative to the size of the top-growth. 2" pots are WAY too small for them to be in longer than a week or two.

Rightio, I have planted one in a large planter already to see if it would take off but it seems to be dormant
