In my garden: Lemongrass in a pot

The lemongrass that I planted in a flower pot few months ago has grown so big, I can hardly see the pot anymore.
Kitto loves the plant.

Today, I am making some lemongrass tea.  I only need lemongrass, pandan leaves and rock sugar.  Boil them together.  

Arghh so nice to have a glass of warm lemongrass tea on a rainy sunday morning.  Feels like I was transfer back to Siem Reap for awhile there..

Benefits of lemongrass tea are endless, but here are some of them..

Not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding mom ya.

Hi Rose, I had few series of failure too. Dunno why these grow so healthy, Maybe they like the haze.. Haha. Seriously I had no idea.

I planted on the ground and also in a pot...but it does not grow fast enough for my missus to use, same with my spring onions, everything. :(
