Lemongrass has great health benefits and is delicious to cook with (especially in Thai dishes). Growing your own is also super simple. All you have to do is place your leftover lemongrass root in a bowl or jar, cover it with water, and leave it in direct sunlight. After about a week, there should be some growth. As soon as that happens, transplant your new lemongrass plant into a pot or in your herb garden.
