We all know how much ginger is healthy and how much doctors gladly recommend it, so here is a suggestion on how to grow it in a pot at home.
The only material that you will need is a pot with soil and bought ginger root, which in its shape resembles a human hand. It is best to choose a “hand” with more “fingers”. To get as many fruits, it is necessary to break out the gingers feelers into several parts.
Planting is easy: put in a pot one “finger” of ginger, and don’t forget that it should be on the surface of the soil. Be careful not to overload the ginger with soil, because it is the main trick to have a successful planting. Water it frequently. It doesn’t need a lot of light, but requires heat.
Plant it as a houseplant in early fall, and when spring comes, transfer it into the garden. When transferring the plants from the pots into the garden, it is necessary to choose a place with loose soil and water it regularly.
You shouldn’t worry about pests and some problems that can attack the plant. The green offshoot of ginger can grow from 60 to 120cm. Allow the offshoot to grow from 3 to 5 months before you start using the new tubers that are going to appear in the soil.
You can use some of them for repeating the procedure and you can always have your own stock of ginger at home.
