Dear Mark and Guanghua, I`m NOT a ginger expert by any means, but can give a
few ideas and suggestions that may be of interst-- I think that ginger grown
for it`s rhizome may need a longer growing "season" than is available in
upstate S. Carolina, but I`d try potting it, growing it for as long as
possible[gingers go dormant after a growing season] then after the leaves[all
of them ] are dry, I`d dig it up and see what it produced! If the rhizome
was insignificant, I`d re-pot it, and grow it for another year, as it just may
require more than one growing season to produce a sizeable rhizome. Maybe a
true expert can correct or add to this!
Good luck---Julius firstname.lastname@example.org
