Farmer's Method: Cultivating Ginger and Lemongrass at Home

Ginger Cultivation:

Begin with a clean, washed piece of ginger.

Divide it into halves and place in a glass bowl or dish.

Add water and cover with a damp cloth.

Allow it a week to develop roots. If unsuccessful, repeat the process.

Once roots are visible, plant the ginger in a pot with soil and watch new ginger plants emerge.

Lemongrass Multiplication:

Trim the thin parts underneath the lemongrass stems with a knife.

Arrange separate pitchers filled with water for each stem.

After several days, roots should begin to form.

Upon root development, plant the stems in soil, enabling you to have a continuous supply of lemongrass.

Once the white roots extend to the end of the container, remove the garlic.

Break the garlic bulb into individual cloves and plant them in a pot with soil.

Patiently await as your garlic begins to multiply in the soil.
