With so many health benefits, ginger is a spice that you will definitely want to consume on a daily basis. Fortunately, there are many ways you can add it. It goes great well with tea, preparing medicinal spices, or cooking. Plus, the good news is that you can grow an endless supply of ginger right inside your home.
To grow ginger, you will need to buy it from a plant nursery or directly from a greenhouse. The ginger you buy at the supermarket or grocery store is sprayed with growth inhibitors, so while it may work, the chances are not great.
You will need a pot with excellent drainage with good and rich soil. Use a wide, not tall pot. This is important because the ginger root grows horizontally and not vertically in depth.
Once you are ready to grow your own supply of ginger, follow these 5 simple steps:
- Soak the ginger root overnight
- Fill the pot with soil and place the ginger root with the buds facing up. Cover the roots with 2.5-5 cm of soil.
- Water well
- Place the pot in a warm and shady place
- Keep the pot moist with a spray bottle. Ginger grows slowly, and it will take a few weeks for you to see sprouts.
It's so easy to grow an endless supply of ginger! It is a perfect spice for home growing because it requires almost no maintenance. Plus, you can cut some of it and use it, and the rest will continue to grow!
