Lemon Grass, or Cymbopogon Citratus, is an easy-to-grow plant that can be planted both in pots and in the ground. When planting in a pot, use a well-draining soil mix and choose a pot that is at least 12 inches deep. Plant the lemongrass in a sunny spot, and water it regularly. When planting in the ground, choose a well-draining location that receives full sun. The soil should be enriched with compost or organic matter. Water regularly until established. It is important to note that lemon grass is not frost-tolerant, so it should be grown as an annual in cold climates or overwintered indoors.

Lemongrass, also known as Cymbopogon citratus, prefers full sun and well-drained soil.
