Popular in many Asian dishes, this plant can be regrown at home. Lemongrass can propagate by simply putting the roots in a glass of water. It is best if the bulb is still mostly intact and there are some roots left. The bulb only needs about an inch of water in the cup and you should be able to see some growth within three weeks. In order to keep the plant healthy and prevent fungus, it is critical that you change the water regularly. Once the roots are about an inch or two, it can be planed in a garden.
