Growing Ginger

I have been growing ginger in rectangular pot (20cm deep, 20cm X20cm width). It has been growing but lately some of leaves turned yellow and the plan is not growing well. I moved the pot to an area with more shade because I thought it was getting too much sun but leaves are still turning yellow. The soil is almost always moist or wet so I don't think there is shortage of water. I just want to know what is the reason of poor growth. The pot was initially filled with good potting mix which should last 6 months. Do I need to give liquid fertilizer or something? If so, how much should I give?

If in pots they need more regular fertilising, Go by the label.
