How To Care

The Citronella plant can thrive in full to part sun.  Indoors, keep your Citronella 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.
