Lemon Grass is a perennial grass that grows in clusters up to 6 feet tall, with long, pointed, and aromatic leaves. Lemon Grass is a great digestive to ease stomach cramps, flatulence, and indigestion. Also known as Fever Grass, it promotes perspiration, helps break fevers, and cools the body.
How To Care
Light: Give lemongrass 6-8 hours of sun for optimal exposure.
Soil: Choose a well-drained soil (most any bagged soil mix) that will stay moist.
Water: lemongrass is not a drought-tolerant plant. Keep the roots constantly moist for best plant health.
Fertilizer: Fertilize lemongrass every couple weeks during the growing season.
Temperature: lemongrass thrives in hot, steamy climates
Pruning: Lemongrass plants that live for more than one season benefit from an annual haircut to tidy up plants and remove dead foliage.
