planting store bought ginger

16 years ago

I've looked at several posts, and have not found a clear answer to my question... which is: how to plant store bought ginger. My never-ending quest to turn my house into an indoor forest has led me to try store bought ginger. I noticed one place that said something about the direction the roots are pointing, but little else.

*Is it important to plant the roots with the tips pointing up or down?

*Should I break up the root into several smaller pieces each with some buds, or should I plant it as one big piece?

*How deep?

*Should some of the root be sticking above soil?

*How much water?

*How much light?


*Make up of soil?

*Anything else?
