Ginger is indeed very easy to grow in a pot.  Mine used to be a small
shrivelled piece that I through into the garden compost. I noticed it growing
several weeks later and potted it in a gallon container. This winter after a
year of growth it sent up a beautiful orchidlike flower stalk with 7 blossoms
which were yellow with red markings. :-)  Today I noticed the plastic pot is
bulging and splitting at the sides so it will have to be repooted real soon.
