Hello friend today I am going to talk about ginger thanks to its spicy and aromatic flavor and it is very rich in essential oils, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids that provide many benefits to the human body and its consumption is more than indicated.
Keep the root once harvested or purchased.
One of the best and simplest ways that lasts the piece for more than three weeks is to keep it in the snow inside a plastic bag of those to freeze with zip and remove the air well.
Another option is to freeze it directly, it lasts about a year, but the texture is rare when thawing it.
HOW TO PLANT EASILY GING AT HOME.
As indoor growing and potting grows anywhere, it needs heat, humidity and does not like the direct sun, it is multiplied by rhizomes, so we can use a part of the ginger that we have at home, simply put it in a pot, water love and wait to harvest.
It is advisable to plant in the spring and make sure that the mother tuber is as fresh as possible.
The rhizomes are marked, we prepare a pot with good drainage and prepared soil with a part of sand, a part of ripe compost and a part of earth, in the center we put the ginger with the rhizomes upwards.
PREPARATION OF RIZOMA
We put the root in water during the night and then cut it into not very small pieces. Make sure that each segment has at least a couple of small packages, which are the buds from which our new plants will grow.
Fill a pot about 30 centimeters deep with a mixture of soil and compost. A good sized container to put 2 to 3 pieces. We press the rhizomes in the shallow ground cover with a little soil. Put the pots in a shady place.
CARE AND GROWTH
At first we started with little watering then we increase when the plant is already out. Ginger likes moisture and heat. Keep the soil moist, but not over-soaked and in temperatures of at least 20 degrees. In the first year, they should reach a size between 40 to 80 centimeters in height.
Once the plants already have a good size we can go harvesting the root little by little and the plant continue to grow in this way if we make two or three pots after a while we will always have fresh ginger at our disposal.
IRRIGATION, CARE AND HARVEST.
It should be watered every day, that the earth is wet but without puddling, in a month we should have stems and leaves, the plant rarely blooms and does not bear fruit, we will harvest in 8 or 10 months when the plant begins to dry, stop watering and when it is already dry it is harvested, and a part of the root with rhizomes is planted again, for the next harvest.
Now if we have the plant in a pot the best thing is to leave it on the ground and keep removing what we need each time. And if you want to enjoy its benefits do not hesitate to include ginger in your diet.
