West Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
4in pot size
West Indian Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is a tropical herb known for its citrusy flavor and aromatic leaves. West Indian Lemongrass is a perennial grass and has thicker stems compared to other varieties. Lemongrass can be used in culinary dishes, teas, medicinal use, and for its essential oil. Regular harvesting helps maintain the plant's vigor and encourages new growth.
Long, green, grass leaves with a strong lemon fragrance. Thus the name Lemongrass
Usually reaches 3 to 6 feet in height, depending on growing conditions.
Stems are thick, fibrous, and have a strong lemon scent.
Flower spikes appear in the fall, but lemongrass is primarily grown for its leaves rather than its flowers.
Lemongrass thrives in full sun. Provide at least 6-8 hours of sunlight per day.
Well-draining, loamy soil ammended with organic matter.
Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season. Allow the top inch of soil to dry touch between waterings.
Lemongrass prefers warm temperatures and is sensitive to frost. Protect it from cold temperatures.
Feed with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season to promote overall growth.
Harvest leaves as needed once the plant reaches a large enough size. Cut the stalks close to the base.
