glittertrash's Lemongrass x 1 Sown

Plant: Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) |

Growing from a stalk I pulled out of my friend’s pot of the stuff. It looked very, very sad for about a month after I transplanted it but has perked up & thrown off a few new shoots recently. The trick seems to be lots of sunlight & lots of water & very good drainage- this thing can take more Aussie sun than even the hardiest of my succulents to date.

    I tried this a while a go, it didn’t do very well here which might have been from a lack of light, water and heat. Nice to see that you got it growing so well.
