They are easily propagated in water. If the lemon grass does not secrete any oil that could harm fish I think it would work easily. It's such an aggressive grower though, and it gets very large quite quickly. I planted a small batch outside and it is threatening to take over a large section of flowerbed already. I expect you would need to cut it back and thin it out often.

Oww, now I'm feeling inferior. I put lemon glass in some water to root, two weeks later, two stems, nothing. I'm usually pretty good at propagating plants but somehow this defeated me. Did I not wait long enough?
