  • Cut the rhizome into pieces if you want to grow many plants.
  • Prepare the high quality and well-drained soil.
  • The location of the plant must be in partial shade or areas with morning sun only.
  • Choose pot at least 12 inches (30cm) deep.  A plastic pot is better than terra cotta, as long as you poke plenty of drainage holes in the base.
  • Plant each piece of ginger 2–4 inches (5–10 cm) below the loose soil, with the buds pointing upward.
  • The watering must be light in plants and check the plant daily that soil must dry water completely.
  • Watch for germination. It grows slowly, especially outside of the tropics.
  • Let the soil dry as the stems die back. The stems of the plant will turn yellow in late summer or early fall, as temperatures drop.
