I’ve been caring for the lemon grass plant for months. It still hasn’t grown much. Very happy with Pintree seeds overall though.

Spotty on sprouting.

There seems to be a 50/50 chance of the seeds I purchased sprouting.

My cat loves this

One of our cats is crazy about this. II germinates easily, grows slowly but steadily, and eventually becomes a large, attractive clump of grass. I keep one inside over the winter and our cat keeps it chewed short. Years ago another cat was equally enthralled with it so I had to keep 2 plants, one out of reach to recover while the other was chewed up. It is attractive in large pots. I haven't used it for cooking, but it has a nice lemon fragrance.
