We Maharashtrians and Gujaratis use lemongrass leaves instead of the lemongrass roots as the Thai cooks do. We add it to flavor our tea. It gives a unique refreshing flavor. It also soothes sore throat.
So far, I used to bring a bunch of lemongrass from the farmers market, put in water for some time to force roots and then I used to plant. This time, I have just kept my bunch of lemongrass in a flower vase. It has roots now. It sits pretty in a corner, as if it's a flower vase.
I think it looks great. I clip the leaves for my tea as needed, and the leaves grow right back.
