The kind of ginger I buy 
 is the root that I slice off pieces and peel mainly for Oriental
cooking, although
i have used it for flavoring in other types of cooking.  I suppose that
ginger would eventually sprout and could be planted, however, mine was in
the refrigerator and just dried up. What would be the best conditions for
getting the root to sprout?
