Pinay in the UK: Calamansi + Lemongrass Update

A few months ago, I bought Lemongrass seeds and a Calamansi pot (with 2 seedlings, bargain!). As promised, here are my updates.


I planted Lemongrass from seeds back in April 2021, read the post here.

To grow Lemongrass from seeds can be tricky. I did an experiment, 1 pot of seeds which were planted straight to the soil, and another pot which seeds were placed in the fridge for a few weeks to encourage germination prior to planting. Guess which pot had a higher chance of seedling survival? It’s the pot with germinated seeds prior planting.

Third Pot: Seeds placed in fridge prior to planting.
Fourth pot: Seeds placed straight into the soil. Only 1 seedling survived and the growth is slow compared to the plants on the third pot.

My plants are growing so well. Both seedlings survived after their trip from the US a few months ago. And both plants still look very healthy. There are more leaves coming out, I can’t wait for them to bear fruits!

These updates are a little bit delayed. I forgot to hit the ‘publish’ button and thought I have already posted it. I will post another update again soon. I’ve repotted my plants a few weeks ago to bigger plant pots.
