Ginger from stem cutting possible?
The home next to my job has a long stand of the most beautiful ginger ... which I believe is the called the variegated kind (the flowers hang in long clumps of downward facing bells) growing in the alley we share.
I'd like to ask him if I can have some, but what I was wondering is whether ginger can be grown from stem cuttings like say roses, and not just from dividing the rhizomes? It seems less annoying to ask him if I could cut some stalks off, rather than to ask about digging up whole roots, though I will do that if I absolutley have to. TIA.
