Fresh ginger root is becoming a popular kitchen staple in many homes. If you find yourself with leftover root, there’s no need to toss it in the trash or compost; you can actually grow a new plant from it. Just fill a small pot with potting soil mix and place the root inside, then cover with more soil and water. In a few days, a small plant will sprout, and in just a few weeks, you’ll actually have a healthy ginger plant. And yes, you can harvest the root in a few months and have ginger root you grew yourself right at home.
