Citrosa Geranium (Citronella) (Mosquito Plant)
6" Pot Size
This plants lemony smell has been known to be effective at warding off pesky mosquitoes. The leaves emit the most smell and are most effective when they are brushed against. For this reason they are ideal next to a sliding door that brushes against their leaves, or somewhere where you will brush them with your leg as you walk by. If you wish to use them for somewhere where you sit make sure to be brushing it with your hands every now and again to release some more scent. They are most effective at repelling mosquitoes within a 1 meter radius from the plant. They enjoy bright light and you want to let the top of the soil dry out a bit in between waterings.
