It’s not hard to start: First, identify your best source of light and add grow lights when needed. Buy an attractive container that drains and a saucer to capture the water so it doesn’t ruin your furniture. Get a good potting soil, gather some rocks or terra cotta chips for drainage, buy plant plugs when possible as it is harder (but not impossible) to grow from seed.

It won’t take long: The time commitment is minutes a day once the initial set up. Set up is less than an hour. Benefits are 24 hours a day.

It won’t cost much: All the materials are inexpensive so failure is no big deal…buy another seed of plug. Or better yet, cut off a piece of ginger from your fridge, place it in some soil, water it and watch in grow more ginger! How fun is that?
