Growing Shop bought Ginger
Hi, I hope i'm doing this right, i am new to this forum, so forgive me if im in the wrong place
I had bought some ginger from the shop about a month ago and had been using it in various recipies, I had noticed it had an "eye" but ended up forgetting about it so bought other ginger for rest of my recipies and when i saw it yesterday it has started to grow.
I have had the idea of growing my own ginger quite recently but thought about doing this next year, as i had other things to sort out to getting my garden and house ready for next year of my new years plan to be more eco friendly and a bit more self sufficient.
Anyways, not that it has sarted to grow, i think i should make the most of it wanting to grow and plant it, what is the best method? do i need to soak for 24 hours or over night since it has already started to grow? what size of pot will it need? (as i am in scotland i doubt it would ever get warm enough for it to grow outside) I have seen a few articals online about starting from ginger root etc but none say what to do if it has already started to grow.
At the moment it is still wrapped in its cling film (has been in this since i had bought it over a month ago) I also want to take advantage of it growing as i need as much help from it as possible as indoor plants (apart from a spider plant and a peace Lilly) all have ended up dying...sad but true... seems to be the more i want something to live the more it dies, the more i dont care about them the better they are...sometimes... but this year (2015) is going to be very productive. So any help on how to grow Ginger would be a great help!
Thanks for your time
