Product Description

The Mosquito Plant is a genetically engineered geranium hybrid with a unique characteristic: it repels mosquitoes! It is easily grown as a potted patio plant, and easily enjoyed for its attractive foliage and sweet lemony scent, as well as for its mosquito repelling powers. It produces a leafy, attractive, foot-tall plant during its first season. Citronella is the substance in citronella candles, which have long been used to deter mosquitoes. It doesn't harm them, but they don't like citronella and avoid it. It is most effective as a repellent if you crush a few leaves and rub them on your skin. Like most geraniums, the Mosquito Plant is normally potted and grown outdoors during the warm season(after last and before first frosts). During the colder seasons the plants can be wintered-over indoors.

    I cannot believe how big this plant was upon arrival. It had some dead leaves and needed some perking up, but wow - I'm very pleased. Hoping the mosquitoes will be equally impressed!

    Sent this off to my mom for Mom’s Day. Caught her on the phone when she unboxed it and she was impressed with how healthy and well packaged it was!
