How to grow ginger at home for an endless supply

Ginger is one of the most valued ingredients in traditional medicine. This root, of Asian origin, is considered a natural antibiotic, and offers a great number of benefits for our health.

In this article, we will explain how to grow ginger at home, even if you do not have a garden. All you need is a window exposed to the sun. Consider that the vegetative period of ginger lasts between 8 and 10 months. Ginger should be planted in February/March.

Before planting, you will have to “wake up” the ginger by soaking it in water and potassium permanganate (you can find it in pharmacies) for about 2 hours.
Put the ginger in a plastic bag and seal it. Leave it in the bag until it starts to sprout (picture 2).
Cut a piece of ginger for each shoot (for example, 8 shoots, cut into 8 pieces).
In a pot with soil, insert some humus and sand, and mix with the soil.
Once the soil is prepared, plant the ginger as shown in photo 3, so that the shoot can grow towards the sun.
Water the soil when it is very dry. Do not add a lot of water, as this may cause the roots to rot.
