Lemon grass is a tropical plant that is quite happy in full sun and average garden soil. It is a tender perennial, hardy only in Zones 9-10. Where temperatures dip below 20°F in the winter, Lemon Grass should spend the summer outdoors but be brought in for the winter.

Q. Lemon Grass

I bought lemon grass stems and i potted them when roots appeared. They are growing fine but the plan has no smell. Is this right?

From my experience, the lemon grass plants don't put out much fragrance while growing, its when you crush it or cook it that you will get the characteristic fragrance and flavor.
