This tropical grassy, bright green, perennial plant is a key ingredient in Asian cuisine.
Germination 7-10 days
Start seeds indoors, on a heating mat or atop of the fridge, cover with plastic wrap, keep seeds moist at 68 degrees with plenty of light.
Once the seedling appears, remove the plastic, keeping the seeds moist but not soaked.
When soil temperatures maintain 70 degrees, transplant seedlings into patio pots, or in the ground. These grass-like, bushy plants do very well in the warmer weather. Ready for use in 90-100 days
Lemongrass has fresh, lemony scent, which is why is it widely used in fragrances and soaps. For culinary uses, try it in soups, marinades, salad dressings and of course stir-frys! Plus it freezes well!
