How to grow ginger at home to have an endless supply of it

Ginger is one of the most beloved ingredients in traditional medicine. This root, of Asian origin, is considered a natural antibiotic, and it offers a huge range of benefits for our health.

In this article we 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. You need to consider that the vegetative period of ginger lasts between 8 and 10 months. You will need to plant ginger in February/March.

Before planting, you will need to “wake up” the ginger by soaking it in water and permanganate potassium (you can find it in pharmacies) for about 2 hours.
Place the ginger in a plastic bag and seal it. Leave it in the bag until it starts to sprout (photo 2).
Cut a piece of ginger for each sprout (e.g., 8 sprouts, cut into 8 pieces).
In a pot with potting soil, place some humus and sand, and mix together with the potting soil.
Once the potting soil is prepared, plant the ginger following photo 3 so that the sprout can grow in the direction of the sun.
Water the potting soil when it is very dry. Do not add much water, as it may rot the roots.
