I am trying to grow lemongrass in a pot (10"). Growing media is cocopeath and compost. I am watering it on regular intervals and plant is under full sun. But this plant is not doing well.

Leaves of this plant are losing color and flavour also. Also growth is a question mark.


Can anyone help me for this problem.

Hello SA,

Flavor, color are all a function of nutrients in your media. Add more compost. Try adding some manure this time. Manure has more nitrogen than compost.

Add soil - Red or Mud to the container. No need to water everyday. Drainage of water is very essential for lemongrass. If water gets logged, they die. After all, aroma is from the volatile oil and volatile oil will be more in the plants only during hot summer seasons not during rainy or winter seasons. So, this rainy season you will get less aroma. Color, I have to see the plant.
