If you’re still buying ginger from the supermarket, it’s time to stop. You do know that you could grow your very own ginger at home, don’t you? They’re low maintenance; growing them won’t take much effort. The best part is, you can easily grow them indoors so that you have a fresh supply of ginger all year round.

You can grow ginger from a living ginger root. If you have a friend with a ginger plant, you can ask for a root cutting. Soak them up in warm water and leave them overnight. This will prepare the root for next day’s planting. Also, make sure that you choose a wide plant pot because ginger roots tend to grow horizontally.

Ginger plants usually take time to grow. In about two to three weeks, you’ll start seeing some shoots. A few months later, you may be able to harvest some small ginger – and this will be very satisfying you’d want to repeat the process over again.
