How to Grow Ginger (Adrak) at Home
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a versatile and flavorful spice that can be quickly grown at home,
whether you have a garden or limited space for indoor gardening.
This guide will help you get started on your journey to grow and harvest your own fresh ginger.
Growing Ginger in Soil
This is the traditional method of growing ginger, which allows you to cultivate a complete ginger plant with rhizomes.
Choose a spot with well-draining soil and partial shade if you have a garden.
For indoor gardening, use a large container with good drainage.
Mix the potting soil with compost or organic matter to enrich it.
Ensure proper drainage by adding gravel or sand if needed.
Choose fresh ginger rhizomes with visible growth buds.
Plant ginger rhizomes about 1-2 inches deep in the soil, with the growth buds facing up.
Space them at least 6-8 inches apart.
Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply and regularly.
