What to do with Zingiber officinale?
I started a Z. officinale in a pot around August or so, and it started to grow in maybe September, but after that, its growth was deformed.
The leaves didn't unfurl completely, were small, and had yellow blotches. I put it into my bathroom, and then the shoot just stopped growing, but stayed green. I recently dug it up, and there didn't appear to be any roots coming out of the ginger. So, now it's just sitting on top of its pot.
Does it just want to rest? Did I start it too late? Should I then put it back into the soil in Spring?
Also, I recently received a Z. zerumbet rhizome about the size of my thumb, with a bud the size of a large pea on it (the bud is yellow-ish but smooth looking). Should I keep it out of soil till winter, in like a drawer? Or should I pot it up?
Thanks a ton,
