EACH RHIZOME IS ABOUT 3" LONG.  Plant your roots in containers of good potting soil and keep warm (75-85 degrees) and evenly watered. Turmeric prefers shade and will eventually produce a large white 'flower' looking spike in the middle that is called an 'Inflorescence'.

    Plant your Turmeric roots in the Fall months and harvest once the bottom leaves start to yellow, about 10 months later. 
    Please google the many uses for the edible herb. Turmeric ('Olena) is also considered one of the 27 Hawaiian Canoe Plants-please google this fascinating term as well if you are not already familiar with it.
