Ginger is very suitable for growing in the home because it needs a small amount of sunlight and allows some of its parts to be left to grow in the soil while others are used.
What makes him even more appealing is his taste and healthy composition. Ginger is often used in cooking, as well as in teas and other herbal cocktails.
Ginger ripens over a period of 10 months. Also, ginger does not do well in cold, so you should keep it indoors during cold months.

Gardening centers or herbal pharmacies are the best places to buy ginger seed. Do not buy ginger from supermarkets and then plant that ginger. This is because supermarkets use germination inhibitor. In case you buy ginger from a supermarket, it is recommended to leave in water overnight to remove all pesticides if any.
