You can easily grow turmeric indoors. Turmeric is grown from rhizomes (root cuttings) similar to ginger. Turmeric does not disseminate seeds. So all you need is a turmeric root that you can find in organic stores or Asian stores.
1. Break a large rhizome into a small piece of rhizome that has two or three buds.
3. Place it about 5 cm below the soil surface, with the buds up.
3.Then water the pot.
That’s all there is to it!
