how deep do the rhizomes go???
A kind acquaintance just gave me a start of his red Shampoo Ginger. I noticed from the "blanched" stem, that the rhizomes had been planted quite deep in the soil. I have planted all of my gingers very shallowly, being afraid of rot. What is the correct depth to plant Shampoo and Spiral ginger? Should a different depth be used, if pot-grown? Does anyone know if these two plants will make it in lower, arid, NM with supplemental irrigation? Will they make it as even potted specimens, pots brought in during winter? It is a veeery dry climate,...will leaf edges "burn"?? Any info would be appreciated....Village Idiot.
