Propagating Lemongrass in a Plastic BottleHave an empty plastic water bottle? You can cut the plastic bottom down to size and propagate your choice of plant. I like this method because I'm able to see the roots grow and ensure it'll be successful instead of planting directly into soil.

I'm currently propagating lemongrass.

Tips:
- Change water every few days.
- Once roots grow out, ready to plant into soil.

Have any of you ever grown lemon grass? If so,? did you grow it from seed or from a plant? If from a plant, where did you purchase it?

I bought a few from a local Chinese shop selling for cooking. I peeled off a few of the lower long leaves (a bit like the kind on a pineapple) which exposed bud like growths, and sat it in some water for a few days, not too deep, it grew strong roots from those buds.

Results - Very healthy plants.

Any good nursery that sells herbs should have it. If not, they will probably order it for you. You can also order on the web. Just google "lemongrass". I did and came up with www.easytogrowbulbs.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID...

What is the best way to grow lemon grass in Malta? I bought a very small plant some time ago from Dubai and after six months I decided to plant it in the soil. It improved quite a bit, but I am expecting new shoots by now. Also is it advisable to fertilize?

lemongrass is a tropical herb, and Malta is I think of Mediterranean climate. They should do well, though probably it requires a bit more humidity than a native plant. It probably would not survive the winter unless it were planted in pots, or as annuals. It does best with rich, well-drained soil.

In general I think it would do all right, as long as you can maintain it warm and moist/
