How To Care

Citronella plant care isn't complicated at all. The Citronella plant can thrive in full to part sun.  Indoors, keep your Citronella mosquito plant near a sunny window or in a sunroom.  Water deeply once or twice weekly for the first 3 months when planting in the ground.  After establishment, Mosquito plants are drought tolerant.  Whether indoors or out water your Citronella plant when the soil is beginning to dry out. You can test this by putting your finger about 1 inch in the soil.  If it is dry to the touch go ahead and water.  Add our balanced, slow-release fertilizer when planting to give your plant a boost.  Our basic potting mix is perfect for repotting these plants in decorative containers.

HOPE THEY GROW!

I think the plants will probably do well. However for them to have been in gallon containers, they were much smaller than I anticipated. When I removed them from the containers all the dirt fell apart as that there was not a well developed root system. Receiving was quick and efficient, although these plants could have been in much smaller containers. With that being said, if I decide on more will probably order again.

Limp with dried and yellowed leaves

I ordered two, 1-gallon sized plants: a Citronella and a Rosemary which were quickly delivered. Unfortunately, due to the way the plants were packaged - in a 4-foot long box with one plant secured at opposite ends and the tops of the plants against each other - the plants must have moved around during the shipping process, causing some of the soil in the Citronella pot to loosen and fall out into the plastic bag that was tied around the pot. The Rosemary plant on the other hand only lost a bit of soil. The Citronella plant was limp with some dried and yellowed leaves (see photos). I removed some of the very dry, crispy leaves and added more potting soil. Both plants are still fragrant, and while the Rosemary plant seems heartier and fared better during the shipping process, I am concerned about the Citronella plant and hope that it will recover.
