Vegetative reproduction is defined as the production of new plants from the vegetative parts like leaf, stem, roots of the parent plant. In ginger, the vegetative propagation occurs through the underground stem called rhizome.   A rhizome is an   underground horizontal stem   with   stored foods and buds. Terminal   and   lateral buds   give rise to new shoots. The new shoots develop green leaves and   photosynthesize. Manufactured foods are   transported down   to enable the growth of the rhizome . The lower portion of the rhizome develops roots and helps in the conduction of water and minerals.
