How to grow ginger roots indoors?
First, you need to find ginger. It is better to buy it from a garden center or a seed catalog than from grocery stores, where it is sprayed with growth inhibitors to keep it from sprouting.
Then, you need rich and drain soil. Also, you should use a shallow and wide pot, as ginger roots are better to be grown horizontally.
When you are ready, here is how to grow ginger roots indoors step by step:
- Soak the ginger root throughout the night to prepare it for planting.
- Fill the pot with rich soil and put the ginger root in the soil with the ginger eyes facing upwards.
- Cover the ginger root with soil (1 – 2 inches).
- Water it well.
- Keep the pot on a warm spot, which does not get a lot of direct sunlight.
- Maintain the moisture of the soil with a spray bottle.
- Water the plant regularly and keep it warm.
- You can harvest a small piece of the ginger root after 3 – 4 months. Put the soil at the edges of the pot aside and find the rhizomes. Cut the required amount and return the soil.
In this way, you can cut ginger roots endlessly.
