My phone camera doesn’t do close-ups very well so the picture above isn’t as clear as I would like, but you might just be able to make out a green shoot?
This piece of ginger is the one I acquired at the weekend and is organic. Notwithstanding, I decided to soak it ‘in case’ there was any growth inhibitor which might prevent it from sprouting. (I think that this is what must have happened with the ginger that I have been trying to sprout for the last week or so.)
Well, if ever there was any inhibitor it certainly didn’t take much soaking to get rid of it, as I only put the root in a bowl of water yesterday morning!
Let’s hope it likes being in soil as much 🙂
