Fresh Ginger root vs powdered ginger

Totally agreed that there's no substitute for fresh ginger, but the powdered China #1 ginger at Prenzey's in Grand Central was a welcome surprise when I was out of the real deal. Re: storing fresh ginger, I read that after testing numerous methods, a particular test kitchen had the best results with storing it peeled in vodka...lasted longer than sherry. But easiest of all, which I haven't tested yet (plan to this time around) is laying it on the soil of a potted plant, or in a bowl of sand.
