This is so cool!!! There is both ginger and turmeric in this tub, but I believe both of these little green wonders came out of the lump of organic ginger from the supermarket. I've kept it on my heated bathroom floor. I didn't really expect it to work now in winter, so I had already planned to try again in spring. Guess that's one thing I don't have to do now - if I manage to keep it alive, that is. Must go find it a bigger pot to live in!
I don't know how much of a crop I will be able to get here in my climate, but it really would be awesome if I actually got something I could eat out of this! @cyndi I'll be happy with "just" a pretty plant too, but I do use a lot of ginger in both food and beverages, so I am really excited!
I'll put it in the orangery later on, @cyndi, but I don't think it would appreciate the chilly 4 degrees (celsius) there these days. The aloes and century plants don't like it at all, so they are spending the coldest part of the season in my living room.
I can, @cyndi, but I won't bother unless it looks like it will get below zero. In the years since we got the orangery, that has never happened - not even during last year's russian cold snap. I just open the door between the orangery and living room every now and then to even out the temperature and humidity a bit.
