    I started growing ginger a few months ago and it sprouted very well and was doing extremely well up until a few weeks ago.* Now I notice it has all turned brown and slightly wilted.* I have not changed my watering routine and it sits in a pot in my kitchen window.* I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas as to why my ginger is dieing?

    Hi Karma,

    Not enough info to help you, but it sounds like the soil stayed too wet at some point.* I just did that with some basil I rooted.* I potted up the rooted cutting and it was doing great.* I watered it a couple of days ago and forgot to empty the water in the saucer.* Today I noticed the stem was black and the leaves are all wilted and there was still water in the saucer.* Even with all I know it can happen when you get distracted.* :?*
