I have turmeric but it isn't up yet. Its a Curcuma and probably won't start coming up for 2-3 weeks yet

I found a rhizome at Whole Foods that didn't look too bad. Tossed it in a pot and waited a few weeks - had to get warm first. Now it has a few green shoots, a couple of inches tall. The rhizome was only an inch long to begin with. Once it gets a little bigger, I would be happy to divide it. I live in Stuart, little over an hour north of Hollywood, but occasionally drive south for various reasons.

If you have an Indian or a Thai/Asian market nearby check them out. The Indian Market should have fresh turmeric. The Asian markets frequently also have fresh Galangal rhizomes. I am growing both
