  1. Fill the pot with the soil and compost. Stir quite well.
  2. Prepare the ginger root. Place, preferably, in the center of the pot so that it has a better space to develop. It buries superficially; that is, you do not have to bury it, just place it horizontally and sink it a little gently, until half is under the ground.
  3. Finally, water the soil a little without wetting the ginger, if not around it.
  4. Place the pot in resolana, not directly in the sun.
  5. Water it frequently (2 to 3 times a week), using little water to prevent the soil from puddling.
