If you don’t already have access to a ginger plant, it’s high time for you to have one now. All you’ll ever need to begin your ginger planting journey is a container, and a chunk of a firm, light-colored ginger with bumpy little buds at the tips, about the size of your thumb. Preferably, it would be best to have an organic ginger since those that aren’t are usually treated with chemicals that prevent sprouting.
Prepare a deep pot with a drainage hole, large enough to accommodate a 36-inch ginger at maturity, and fill it with a proper potting medium. Soak the ginger into a bowl of warm water overnight, then plant the ginger root with the bud pointing up and cover the root with 1 to 2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of soil. Water lightly. Place the container in a warm room where the ginger root is exposed to indirect sunlight. Outdoors, place the ginger plant in a spot that receives morning sun but stays shady during hot afternoons. Water as needed, and don’t overdo it. Be patient since the growing process takes time. In about 2-3 weeks, you should see sprouts emerging from the root.
