Yes, you can grow a galangal plant from a fresh rhizome. Place the galangal root in potting soil or compost, leaving about an inch of the root sticking out above the surface. Keep the soil evenly moist, and place the plant in a sunny windowsill.

Given enough space, a galangal plant can grow up to 6 feet tall with leaves about a foot long. Galangal will only grow outside in zones 9 and 10 in the United States.
