Can ginger be grown in greenhouses (raised beds, plastic coverings, warmers as needed) in zone 9a? Have access to great soil, lots of water and high humidity.

I am very successful growing ginger in my 9b raised beds and clay succulent planters (a 2ft shallow clay pot you see at garden centers with annuals or cacti growing in them). I sow knobs I've purchased at the market (no problem with them sprouting) in the springtime though; as the summer heat comes on, I make sure to water every day. Just make sure you butt the broken off end against the side of the container, and allow the front part of the plant to grow forward towards the center of the pot. (Hopefully that makes sense).
