Yes, it's quite easy to grow a new ginger plant from a leftover ginger root that's been lying in your vegetable rack for a while. Place the piece of ginger you want to use in some water overnight, then cut off a piece of around 1 to 1.5 inches the next morning. The piece should contain at least one eye. Plant the piece in well-prepared soil with the eye facing upward and make sure it gets some sun and water.
