Lemongrass

I purchased a lemon grass plant at the Canada Blooms show and am wondering how to keep this plant growing and healthy? Does it need full sun (indoors) can it be put out in the summer and should it be in full sun then. What type of soil does it like to be transplanted into as it grows out of it’s current pot.

The plant does best in full sun both indoors and outdoors when summer arrives. Placing it out of doors will result in better growth. Using a well-draining, rich soil will be best.
