Kunyit – Turmeric
Posted On August 1, 2007
This is what happen when you bought too much fresh turmeric for cooking. In the end all the fresh rhizomes start to grow on their own and I have no choice but to plant them in pots. At the moment I have like 3 pots of turmeric plants.
This time I think my turmeric leaves are all save from being eaten by grasshoppers like last time. But it seems after few weeks there is some pest problem on the leaves side. Maybe lack of water spraying and the unstable climate of hot, dry and wet leads to such problem.
I have moved the plants to some place that accessible to rain so that in case I am too busy to water them, they won’t be in a draught for many days. If all manage to grow well I think I will repot them all into one big pot for easy maintenance.
