An attractive, large, broad-leafed, tussock-forming grass native to western Malesia that makes and attractive ornamental and is widely used as a source of citronella oil for use in cosmetics, cleaning products, candles and similar commodities.
It is also used in traditional medicine and in the kitchen like lemon grass. Very easy to grow in warm temperate and tropical climates. Germination: Press the seeds gently 5mm (1/4″) into pre-moistened, sterilized seed starting mix. Use seedling trays with plastic domes, or containers sealed inside large plastic bags. Use bottom heat from a Seedling Heat Mat to maintain a soil temperature of 21°C (70°F). Keep seed trays or containers in a dark room or cupboard. Seeds should germinate in 5 to 21 days. The trick is to maintain a moist, not wet, environment. Once seedlings appear, remove the dome or plastic bag, and move them into full sun or beneath strong, full spectrum, artificial light.
