I usually take ginger infusion, sometimes I add turmeric as these plants have good and effective properties, I can attest that ginger for colds, strong flu, to relax is effective, as well as turmeric is good for people who have or suffer from psoriasis among other things.

I recommend ginger candies or you can also elaborate them, this way it is easier for some people to consume it in the course of the day, you could also add it as a condiment to your meals.

In the photos you will appreciate the ginger that I have in a pot that still needs to mature for that reason this time I will not be able to show you the harvest, but I have ginger already ready from the previous harvest.

According to my experience the ginger plant is more delicate than turmeric, so you have to pay attention once planted, do not put too much water, it must have sun and not too much.

The time to harvest once you sow the ginger is nine to ten months, I tell you that sometimes I have left it a while longer it all depends on the plant and maturation of the same, if you want to get big and beautiful ginger, plant it in a fertilized soil.

it's easy to take care of but you have to wait for a long month before the harvest so I decided to plant something else.

If indeed, for the harvest it is a considerable time, but it is a plant that has many benefits.
