How did your ginger turn out? In case you still need to know, here's how I plant grocery store ginger:
Lay ginger flat (lengthwise) on top of soil. Nuzzle into soil about 1", leaving ginger exposed on top (kinds of looks like a spaceship that has landed). Water.

That's it! Ginger should sprout within a few days. Very beautiful and hardy. Rub leaves between fingers, then smell fingers for great ginger smell!

Also to plant from grocery store: Ebos, lycees, sweet potato
