I had some ginger root that I left sitting on the counter and before I knew it the nub began to get larger. I had heard that it is a relatively easy to grow, so I looked up some instructions and am going to give it a try. I had two growths so I split the hunk of ginger into two pieces. This was the largest piece. If you are interested in giving it a try, you can view instructions here. TGIF everyone!
