Default Planting ginger

A couple of months ago, I was in an Asian supermarket, needed ginger, and could only buy a whole package of it. Enough for several lifetimes.

Yesterday, I noticed that it had started to sprout. So, I Googled, and found out how to plant it.

I planted two of the larger sprouts in one of my outside containers (that I leave outside) and two smaller pieces in a smaller pot that I will take inside on the Fall (ginger doesn't like temps below 55 degrees F).

Kinda fun to try.

Has anyone else grown ginger?

You can see my trying in the "My garden"- thread - two hot chilis and ginger:

Saliha, or anyone ...

I harvested two sections of ginger ... now what? Do I leave it to air dry to get that brown skin on it?

Do I slice it and put it in a jar with white wine to keep in the fridge? That's what I do with store-bought ginger.

It's enough to last me a lifetime, because, for me, a little goes a long way.

How do you use it?

I took in a smaller plant for the winter, mainly because I like the bamboo-like foliage.

I've grown it for the "house plant" effect - the hard skinned ginger 'hands' you see on the shelf are harvested after the foliage dies back. that can take 18-24 months.

you can harvest before that - but it typically is not as "strong"

I never thought about and leave it in the bowl with the onions and garlic. I know better now.

Your ginger looks good, Lee.

Unfortunately my ginger died at summer. Need to start again later.
