Take the rubber band off and stick the whole bundle of roots in a glass or a bucket of water so the roots get a good drink. They will hopefully perk up.

I've had the same kind of problem. Although mine (also walla walla) are already in the ground. The green tops are all yellowing. It started after the hot desert winds a few weeks ago. Everyone in the plot that has onions look that way.

Anyone know what causes it?

Also, do onions like the soil a bit dry? Instructions say "when you water the rest of the garden, water the onions. I've got shallots and garlics in the same area.
