How To Plant Ginger

It is best cultivated in temperatures between 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, although it can tolerate temperatures as low as 55 degrees and as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit. The best annual rainfall range for ginger plants is between 1,400 and 3,000 mm.


I always cut my rhizomes into smaller pieces. When you do this, make sure that each piece contains at least 2 or 3 nodes and also let the piece dry out and heal.

These plants thrive in temperatures between 71 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit. They also thrive in high humidity. You can get a humidifier or simply keep it in a more humid environment.

How To Grow Ginger

How To Grow Ginger In Warm Climates

How To Harvest Ginger
