How to Grow Ginger at Home
I have read a lot about the medicinal properties of ginger and wanted to see if I could grow it at home. It is super easy! Here’s how I am doing it, and it seems to be working well.
Pick up a piece of ginger at a local store, preferably organic if you can find it. Try to pick a piece that has more than one nodule or section that you can break apart. When you’re ready to plant these roots, break apart the separate nodules. Using a pot(s) of good soil, place the ginger pieces on top of the soil and “wiggle” them down into the soil but leave some exposed above the surface. Keep it watered as you would other plants. I water most everything once a day.
It took several weeks, but the ginger root pieces have sprouted and are sending up straight pointy stems, creating new plants. It was very easy to get these started and I am looking forward to growing more ginger. If anyone has any further experience doing this, please leave a comment! I’m curious how long it takes and harvesting information. Thanks for reading!
