Lemon Grass Growing Season In India 

Sow lemon grass seeds in the months of October to February. You can grow lemon grass indoors at any time throughout the season, but the plant should receive adequate sunlight.

How To Grow Lemongrass In Container 

You can sow lemon grass seeds directly in large pots or by transplanting method, it grows well in both ways. To sow lemon grass seeds, you need a large pot at least 12 inches deep and 12-24 inches wide with proper drainage holes. Lemongrass seeds germinate best at a temperature between 10-24°C, although they can germinate at temperatures up to 30°C.

Lemon Grass Seeds Sowing Method  

Take a pot or grow bag, fill them with soil and add organic fertilizer. Sprinkle some lemongrass seeds over the soil, and cover the seeds with a very light layer of soil, remembering that lemongrass seeds are very thin and tiny so don't put a thick layer of soil over the seeds. Water the soil gently and keep the soil moist and place the pot in a sunny spot as lemon grass seeds need light to germinate. Lemon grass seeds germinate in about 10-15 days, they can germinate early or late depending on growing conditions.
If you have grown lemon grass in a seedling tray, you need to transplant them into larger pots after the seeds have germinated and when the seedlings are a few inches tall. Lemon grass should be planted in a large pot about 10-12 inches apart. For better plant growth, add organic manure to the soil, give proper water to the lemon grass plant and maintain moisture in the soil. 

Fertilizer For Lemon Grass 

  • Apply nitrogen-rich fertilizer for better growth of lemon grass plants. 
  • You can also add slow-release fertilizer during the growing season.

Lemongrass Plants Care Tips

  • Soil - Use rich, loamy, and moist soil for planting lemon grass.
  • Water - Lemongrass likes moist soil to thrive and 1 inch of water per week is sufficient. Don't overwater and retain moisture in the soil to keep the plant healthy.

  • Temperature - The ideal lemon grass growing temperature is 10–33°C. Lemongrass is frost sensitive and it cannot tolerate temperatures below 4°C.

  • Mulching - Mulching is a good option to retain soil moisture and protect the lemongrass plant from the cold climate, for mulching add 2-3 inches of dry leaves, straw, grass, etc. to the soil. You can also keep your lemon grass pots indoors in winter.
