Review:

Pre ordered 4 plants. Looking forward to seeing them shipped out to us. Hubby has an indoor garden area that he keeps high humidity, warm and with grow lights on a timer. He's an orchid and bonsai enthusiast (we both are) so the grow area will be perfect for them. I purchased potting soil and a very large deep clear tote bin for planting our new ginger baby plants into so I can watch the ginger growing and know better when they're ready for harvest. I'll be lightening the soil with sand and lots of peat moss since ginger likes lighter looser soils. The temperature in the grow zone is fair well around 80 or so degrees F all the time. I am also South Korean and use ginger a lot in cooking so it will be nice to have my own supply growing in house to use in my kitchen. I'm always happy with my seed orders from Baker Creek so I have no doubt I will be happy with these plants as well. I've just never had any luck with starting my own plants so I'm purchasing starts this time around.

Review:

Got a surprisingly large yield from these two plants. Have kept about 1/3 back to try to grow more next year but the rest filled two pints jars (with brandy to store them).

Review:

Can't wait to try your plants, but thought you might want to know my experience growing these from grocery-store roots. Fat grocery store roots with tiny nubbins at the joints WILL grow...after months of waiting and watering carefully, in windowsill pots. But plants already started will be much more reliable. (50% loss of the store-bought ones, during attempts to root them.) PLANT IN GIANT, DEEP POTS in non-tropical areas. Regular pots gave stunted baby rootlets. And growing in pots does work if you have a sunny windowsill or lights on timers in a basement "grow-room." About six months after the plants began to grow, I got little-finger sized ginger roots in my 5"-deep pots. (Morals of the Story: Buy plants, not plain roots; plant in deep, wide pots.)
