Galangal Plant Growing
Awhile back I wrote about the Galangal Rhizome I found at Family Store see here. I wrote that I might try to buy some roots from Family Store, and so I did. I put one rhizome in wet paper towel and plastic to see if it would grow leaf shoots. I let the bag sit for a couple weeks. Eventually I saw a green shoot and moved it to the Laundry Room where there is a large window. It keeps growing, so I guess it works. But now I'm pretty sure I don't want to put Galangal between our house and our neighbor's for privacy as I originally was thinking in my post here. I am currently thinking about Bamboo for this part of the property. But concerned bamboo will get out of control. Anyway, I need to find a place to plant this Galangal in my garden sometime soon... maybe the back corner.
