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.

Not as Expected

After contacting customer care and sending them a picture of what I received side by side with the advertisement, I was advised the picture was of a full grown plant. I responded I felt this was false advertisement then, and customers should be made aware. I knew the pot was not included; but for a 1 gallon plant it seemed to me it should have looked more than a "Charlie Brown" tree. I was also advised that in 3 weeks I should see how fast it will grow. This was as of 7/16/19, we'll see what happens in August.

Packaging issue

First order was a fail (one plant was not secured and dumped out completely in the box onto the other plant.) Replacement plant came two days later in great condition.

Citrenella plant purchase

Ordering was easy. Quick. Plants on the other hand did not come in the best of shape. 4 plants where ordered, and they where on top of each other. One plant came almost dead. I'm trying to bring it back, but I don't have much hope. Threw other 3 where better but not great.
