I harvested my first ginger Jan 25th. I grew it in an 8" pot but I will repot in a 12". Looks a little stunted. ?? Ginger - Page 2 Ginger10

Those are perfect, Sanderson!  Nicely done!  Mine never got that big.  Guess our season is just too short...and too cold indoors in the winter.

They look great to me. It does not take much ginger to get a lot of flavor.
Looks like a lot for an 8in, pot.

Just harvested the ginger today.  Waited until the stalks died back.  This year I grew it in a 12" x 12"H pot of Mel's Mix.  It is spread out on a 13" x 23" drying rack for reference.  I can't wait to weigh it when the MM dries.

I will be making ginger powder with at least half the harvest. I have to decide which pieces look good for replanting. I can't remember if I re-planted the mother pieces or new daughter pieces. thinking

Usually the piece that you plant usually goes away like a potato, and just the new pieces are left in pot. They will all grow next yr. If you can, you can start next yrs. in the pot in the house. It takes about 10 months growing to get them to bloom.

That's neat. Did you start with the remaining piece from last year, or just small pieces?

I put in 4 small double lobed-lobed pieces, but I don't remember if they were the mother pieces or new pieces. Mine never bloom but they do produce more ginger. Maybe I put in 2 mothers and 2 daughters. thinking

Well doesn't take much to get me fired up this time of year but before I head off to the grocery store to get me a hunk of ginger to plant, is there anything specific I should be looking for, to pick out one that will be productive? Sanderson, my #1 piece of advice this year which I also hope to follow all year long is keep a garden journal that will hopefully jog my memory because I remember because I have reminders but the specifics as to the when and how are a misty fog sometimes.

I look for "warts" on the ginger clump. Those are like eyes that will grow new leaf stalks. (I think they grow into the leaf stalks.) Embarassed Anyway, those clumps will produce more ginger root.
