How To Grow Turmeric Indoors (The Secret Is In The Watering)

Image source:

For centuries, people have used turmeric as a medicinal herb and a cooking spice. Today, herbalists recommend turmeric and turmeric tea blends to aid in the relief of inflammatory conditions, aches, pains and gastrointestinal problems.

One of the active components in turmeric is curcumin. Curcumin is obtained from the dried rhizome of the turmeric plant, and it has been found to reduce inflammation and stiffness related to arthritis and joint pain.

The good news is that it is possible to grow turmeric at home ─ indoors or outdoors ─ so that you can harvest the root yourself! If you would love to have a constant, fresh supply of turmeric root, then this is the way to go!

Since cold weather is soon approaching, let’s focus on growing turmeric indoors.

1. Attain turmeric root

Turmeric doesn’t propagate seeds and is grown from rhizomes (root cuttings). Therefore, all you need is one turmeric root, which you can buy at a local nursery or online.

2. Break up the rhizome

Break larger rhizome into smaller pieces. Make sure each piece has a bud or two on it.

3. Use a large pot

Start off with a pot large enough to grow a nice root system.

    Turmeric alone shortens telomeres
    In curry powder it lengthens telomeres

    • Your comment contradicts it’s self.
      There is Turmeric in curry also. Turmeric will LENGTHEN telomeres which extends life and since there is Turmeric in curry powder, it does similar things. To say that curry powder will lengthen them but not turmeric powder is like saying that 1 ounce of water satisfies you more on a hot Summer day than 8 ounces of water does.
