Ginger root is fast becoming a kitchen staple for its healthy digestive properties and delicious taste. If you find yourself with a leftover chunk of ginger root, don't toss it in the trash -- grow a ginger plant from it. Fill a small pot with organic potting mix, place the ginger root in the soil and water it. In a few days, you'll see new growth coming out of the soil, and in a few weeks, you'll have a regenerated ginger root that you can harvest and use at home. If you do this right, you'll never have to purchase ginger root again!
