Growing Ginger

I'm trying to grow ginger for the first time in a greenhouse. The first shoot appeared about two weeks before Christmas. I have now realised the pot may be too shallow as it simplanted in about 25 cm of soil. Is it possible to transplant it to a deeper pot? How deep should the pot be?

I found growing ginger to be most successful in a polystyrene box. It worked very well. I kept the box on the back porch and gave it plenty of water.
