planting store bought ginger
I've looked at several posts, and have not found a clear answer to my question... which is: how to plant store bought ginger. My never-ending quest to turn my house into an indoor forest has led me to try store bought ginger. I noticed one place that said something about the direction the roots are pointing, but little else.
*Is it important to plant the roots with the tips pointing up or down?
*Should I break up the root into several smaller pieces each with some buds, or should I plant it as one big piece?
*Should some of the root be sticking above soil?
*How much water?
*How much light?
*Make up of soil?
