Hi and welcome. Thank you for joining. In this video, I will be transplanting some ginger plants into pots that I started in doors. from
the rhizomes. The ginger pieces shown here are remnants from last year's harvest. In the
first step, I punched holes in the bottom of the tray for drainage. I filled the tray with
potting soil. Next, I inserted the rhizomes horizontally and I added one inch of soil
on top of the rhizomes. I kept the container warm and moist until the shoots appear. So
anywhere between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal. Here are the plants 26 days later. Since
the rhizomes were placed in the tray , the plants have varying heights depending on the
size of the rhizomes that were planted. So if you are starting from scratch , you could purchase organic ginger from the grocery store. Look for details with well-developed eyes
or growth buds.
Cut the ginger into segments one to two inches long with a few eyes on
each. Then allow them to sit for a few days before planting them. And you have options you could plant them directly into the pots .It depends on the time of the year or you could
do them as the approach I took in this case where I just started them off in a tray. And
then I transferred them into individual pots. So one of the things I would like to
emphasize is ensuring that you use loose soil in the process. That makes it easier to transplant them without having to damage the plants. And also there are sprouts in clusters, so
I'll leave those intact. I do not want to mess with the roots or disturb the roots so I will keep those intact. So I've had four pots so far of the transplants.
The next step will be to apply some irrigation. So I have two more .Here two more clusters
to transplant and this is the first one that I need to of the last that I need to transplant.
And then the other one as shown that one has two sprouts. So I'll be
placing all six pots into a partially shaded area. I've started a new shaded area in the woods. So I don't have to buy any additional shade . We'll be talking about that later on in a another video.
Stay tuned for updates thank you for watching and remember to subscribe to the Petersville Farm channel if you have not done. So there will be a number of other great videos that I have in
the pipeline. Thank you and happy gardening..
