I have 2 but thinking of growing more. This lemongrass (xa) is growing well in Melbourne, kept growing through winter without any problems.

To get the real taste and flavor of Lemon grass use the bottom portion of the plant, which forms like a bulb, slightly chop and add to your tea infusing water, beverages, culinary preparation, also remarkable as a mosquito repellent.I am a grower of LG

My mother had 3 huge clumps of these lemon grass so I divided one and took a clump to my new place. They are currently going in the ground, I am not too sure how well they do in the new location but finger cross. They produce a lovely smell when you br...
YELLOW ROCK, NSW, Australia
Survived oct13 fires and relocationIt never gets watered & sometimes you think you've neglected too much & it just keeps growing. Must plant it out one day.Well I have planted it out & whooshka
No maintenance plant which needs regular watering (I have mine in a water well pot). Regular harvesting will mean you can supply everyone you know with lemongrass, and still have loads left over. Freeze or dry stalks for cooking; dry leaves for tea...

New Lambton, NSW, Australia
I'm a big fan of Thai food, so thought i'd add lemongrass to other herbs and spices i'm growing
Holsworthy, NSW, Australia
Grew well over summer. Some frost damage but main plant seems to have survived
My friend´s lemongrass flourished in partial shade and mine in a sunny window. Great pot plant. If your plant runs to seed, gather and spread in a tall or bowl pot. In less than a year you get an elegant fountaining piece for indoors or out!
South Windsor, NSW, Australia
This lemon grass is just delicious. We do alot of Thai cooking and it is an essential ingredient. Very easy to grow, thrives on neglect. The picture was taken after I had cut a whole heap out for friends. It is a prolific bearer.
Kalgoorlie, WA, Australia
Purchased from Daleys. Trying to find a good spot. Might just keep it in a pot
Kealba, VIC, Australia
grows extremely well - it is in a garden bed with other herbs about 1m from the base of a lemon tree. The soil is mushroom compost and we have some mulch on top. Needs to be declumped if not harvested frequently.
Shelley, WA, Australia
used as a border, dung up and replanted as needed for kitchen or market days
A great plant to have near your compost bin, water well in summer and slash it to feed the compost bin, it grows back very quickly. plant a few next to the chook pen too, they love it.
Great to stuff fish just gut fish and pick several leaves and rap up in a bunch and stuff in the stomach cavity
Infuse with ginger for refreshing drink in summer and good for the digestion...and skin. Great when steaming asparagus...just put a few slices on top of asparagus in steamer.
Slice finely and add to burger pattie for tasty a twist
Make sure you plant the grass in a place where your pet dogs or chooks cant chew or pick on. Thats how mine dissappeared!
Do not over water this plant because it will grow to big and make sure you keep it trimed
In hot conditions this plant flourishes. Place in boiling water to infuse the taste then place in your fridge for a great tasting cold drink in the summer. Or you can drink it hot as a herbal tea.
