Easy Peasy Gardening – Growing Lemongrass
Fail Proof Directions
Lemongrass is a very easy to grow herb used in Asian recipes, teas, medicals and skin care products. It is native to Asia, Africa, Australia, and tropical islands, but can be grown anywhere where it can get at least 6 hours of daytime summer sun.
What to look for: If possible buy stalks that have sections of root base at the end of the stalk. If the leaves come all the way to the bottom of the stalk, you will have to pull some of the leaves off the stalk.
Place the stalks in a glass, jar or vase and place in a sunny
window or bright spot outside.
The above photo shows stalks placed in glass vase on sunny warm deck. In cold weather, a bright window will work as well. Place the stalks in a glass, jar or vase and place in a sunny window or bright spot outside.
In just a few days, roots will start to emerge in the spaces left from the removal of the leaves.
In a few more days and one or two new plants might also form in these spaces. The new plants are usually green and will face up.
