Q:What's the proper car for this plant
by|Aug 3, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The Mosquito plant performs best in full (6-8) hours of sunlight and it's ideal to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. You can fertilize these plants once a month in spring-summer. Pruning can be done regularly to maintain its shape.

          the worst!!!!
          These were the smallest, sickest looking plants ever! I really want a refund! Really disappointed. Other plant shipments have been lovely. This is awful! One star is one star too many.

            Poor plant sent
            You I received this Plant . It was in poor condition. I had to cut dead leaves off. I wonder why this plant was sent. I hope it comes back.

              poorly potted and shipped
              I just received shipment of this Citronella Lavender Blooms Mosquito plant (sku 1004428370). It arrived much smaller than advertised, poorly packaged with no protection for foliage. The plant was very loose in the soil, and many of the leaves are brown. This plant doesn’t look worth the $30 i paid for it. There also wasnt any information regarding the care of this plant, as is customary with most plant purchases via Home Depot. It does have a lovely fragrance and I really hope it survives. My rating has more to do with the condition of the plant, after shipping, than the plant itself, aside from the size misrepresentation.
