  1. Hi Ying Ying,
    have followed your blog(blogkaki)for almost 3 years, love it. I'm now living in Austin, TX, thinking of planting some lemongrass, do u know how to plant it, by seed? where to buy the seed?
    Thanks for your kind sharing for all this while. Jane

  2. Hi Jane,

    Just buy 1-2 stalks of fresh lemongrass, soak it in water at room temperature, and change water every two days until you see roots start growing at the bottom, you can then bury it on the ground/pot to start planting!

    Welcome to my blog!

  3. Thanks Ying Ying. Jane
