Learn how to grow ginger indoors and outdoors, what growing conditions this tropical plant needs to thrive and produce an abundance of the spicy ginger root. If you can provide these conditions growing ginger is easy!
Ginger is the perfect herb to grow indoors. It’s very low-maintenance, loves partial sunlight, and you can use parts of it at a time, leaving the rest in the soil to continue growing. Besides, it’s delicious!
If you are growing ginger indoors remember to move the plant if it is in a location where it might get too cold in winter. The easiest way to get hold of a ginger plant is to break the little "finger" end pieces off a root of ginger. The best ones are those with a shoot bud developing. These look like a small pyramid horn at the end of the root.
