Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)

  • The lemongrass cane-like stems base may carry a reddish base.
  • Cymbopogon citratus a Southeast Asia native, long grown for commercial use in some countries like Java, Indonesia, India, and Sri Lanka.
  • With an exquisite fresh, lemony fragrance that intensifies when you crush or stroke the leaves.
  • For optimum enjoyment try planting lemongrass strategically in the garden, along walkways, patios, and porches.
  • It also makes an excellent companion to other plants as its vertical form and graceful leaves provide a pleasant contrast to rounded flowers and shrubs.
LIGHT
  • It does well with a full day of sun, but a sunny spot with partial shade also does wonders for them.
  • Give them 6-8 hours of sun for optimal exposure.
  • Place them beside a patio or under the protection from a tall tree.
  • If plants start looking dry and withered, move them to a more shaded location, to give them the appropriate sunlight hours during the day.
WATER
  • Do not allow the grass to dry out.
  • Watering requirements depend on where the plant’s location – full sunlight and no shade means the grass will dry out quickly.
SOIL
  • As for the soil requirements, choose a well-drained soil (most any bagged soil mix) that will stay moist.
  • A loamy soil ensures it is getting what it needs.
  • Soil which dry’s out will not work for it to grow healthily.
FERTILIZER
  • Fertilize lemongrass every couple weeks during the growing season every couple of weeks with a liquid 20-20-20 plant fertilizer or liquid fish fertilizer.
