Ginger, a beloved ingredient in traditional medicine, originates from Asia and is renowned as a natural antibiotic with a multitude of health benefits. In this article, we’ll guide you on cultivating ginger at home, even if you don’t have a garden. All you need is a sunlit window. Keep in mind that ginger’s growing season spans between 8 to 10 months, making February or March the ideal time for planting.

Before planting, you’ll need to “awaken” the ginger by soaking it in water and potassium permanganate (available at pharmacies) for about 2 hours. Place the ginger in a plastic bag, seal it, and leave it in the bag until it begins to sprout (see photo 2).

Cut a piece of ginger for each sprout (for example, if there are 8 sprouts, cut it into 8 pieces). In a pot with soil, add some humus and sand, mixing them together with the soil.

Once the soil is prepared, plant the ginger following the guidance in photo 3, ensuring the sprout can grow towards the sunlight.

Water the soil when it’s very dry. Avoid adding too much water, as it may cause the roots to rot.
