Out of all the lemongrass, the one that has done the best is in a spot that gets the most sun. The other were shaded by a tomato or pepper plant.
I am finally seeing some differences in the fresh potting soil versus the recycled soil. The jalapeno plant in the recycles soil is running out of nutrients and is turning yellow whereas the jalapeno in the new potting soil is still a luscious green.

I fertilized the plant in the recycled soil and it is slowly getting back some color. I guess the lesson is that when using recycled potting soil, make sure to start fertilizing regularly.
