2. Plant the roots into containers
Cut the root (rhizome) into smaller pieces, each should have a growth bud on them and plant them all. Make sure to use really good soil, a good potting mix. It must be rich enough to feed your ginger it must be free draining but it has to hold moisture.
Choose a shallow and wide pot or a larger container, depending on how many roots you are planting. Fill the container nearly full with soil and plant the ginger an inch or two beneath the soil. Make sure that the eye buds are facing up!
