If you are looking for an ideal grow that you can grow inside your home, then you must take organic ginger into consideration. This herb doesn’t need special care, it’s fond of moderate sunlight and you can take and use parts of this herb at any time while the rest of the herb keeps growing in the soil.
In addition, ginger is tasty! Vegetable gardening brings many benefits and if you are involved in growing organic ginger, this type of gardening is even more useful.
A Few Things You Should Know About Ginger
It takes about ten months for ginger to become mature and it is worth mentioning that this plant has low resistance when it comes to frost.
In case you live in an area where the weather is very cold during the winter period, it is the best idea to grow ginger inside your home in a simple pot. You can leave the pot outside in the summer.
Ginger is an incredible plant that makes good progress in partial or even in full shade which means that it is perfect for cultivating in the home because most homes don’t have areas in their home that are exposed to sun all the time.
While the plant grows, you can cut small pieces of ginger root.
Only a small amount of ginger is enough for healthy cooking, preparing tea or for numerous natural remedies.
Planting Organic Ginger
If you want to be sure that you are buying a healthy and organic ginger to plant, you should check the seed catalog or the local garden center.
Those who want to be sure that their plant will succeed should look for ginger seed that was meant to be cultivated. It is good to know that ginger is not easy to be found from local garden suppliers.
Ginger bought from the local grocery store can certainly be used to grow a plant, but the results are usually not that good.
The reason is simple – these stores usually use growth inhibitor (they spray it on the plant) in order to slow down the sprouting. These effects continue even when you plant ginger in a pot of soil.
In addition, ginger found in grocery stores can also contain fungicides and pesticides. The fact is that you never know what you will get when you buy grocery store ginger.
Here’s how to plant your endless supply of organic ginger:
Soak your ginger roots overnight. The next morning, place them in a pot filled with soil, making sure the eye buds are pointed upward. Cover the roots with one to two inches of soil, and water well. Keep the pot at a room temperature, and away from sun.
Use a spray bottle to keep the pot moist. It might take several weeks before you notice the first shoots, but be patient and you’ll have your own organic ginger.
