Growing Ginger is a fun DIY gardening project for the kids.
It seems that I am on a growing from scratch kick today. This time it is a short tutorial on growing ginger. If you’re looking for an easy plant to grow indoors Ginger is the one for you.
- Take a chunk of Ginger from your kitchen scraps and place it into the soil. Make sure the newest buds are facing up.
- Place the pot in filtered light, not direct sunlight. (great for growing indoors so the kids can be see it growing nearby. Unlike the other plants we’ve talked about so far Ginger enjoys filtered light.
- Soon enough you will begin to see new growth sprouting up. This means the roots are starting to form under the soil.
- After the plant gets used to its new home you will be ready to harvest the plant again for another one.
- Pull the entire plant out of the soil and cut off a the pieces you need, and just replant it like you did initially.
- As an added bonus for you Ginger makes a great house-plant.
- If you have it in a pot outside, and live outside of the warmest zones, be sure to bring it indoors before the frost hits.
