|what conditions are needed to grow ginger, i.e. amount of sun, type of soil, etc.|
|Ginger (Zingiber officinale) needs rich, well-drained, moist soil and plenty of indirect sunlight and water. It is frost-sensitive, and mostly grown in the subtropics and tropics. It will grow from a healthy piece of root planted in spring.
Make sure you get ginger roots which already have some new buds cropping out, plant them in a location that gets indirect sunlight and water regularly. Average, well draining soil is just fine for ginger. The stems will reach two to four feet tall with narrow, glossy green leaves that can get up to a foot long.
