Restoring πŸ‹ lemongrass plants 🌱 

The lemongrass restoration project started with a cluster of husky, root-bound and undernourished plants. First, I pruned them making sure to clip all the dead or drying leaves πŸƒ and stray strands around the roots, which looked like a ball of tangled thread. The sweet lemon aroma was encouragement especially as the sharp leaves grazed my arms while trimming the plants.
Eventually, after a day of rain and pruning, the leaves became greener and more vibrant. One by one, they’re being transplanted into pots so there’s enough space for them to grow. The roots need to acclimatize to a new and larger home. In a few days, I can see a big difference already and giving thanks for not giving up on them.
Some are planted directly in the earth in moderate sunlight. Lemongrass adds a refreshing aroma to any area it’s in, and the leaves make a delicious and healthy tea and addition to homemade hair oil mix.
Thankful for perseverance. I almost gave up on these, when I saw the condition they were in and how many plants required immediate attention. With each step and each day, they responded to care and a new environment.
