How to care for Citronella

  • Light: Full Sun

    Place in a bright room that is sun drenched almost all day. Or directly in a south-facing window.

  • Watering need: High demand

    This is a water-loving plant, it does not like to dry up much. Before watering feel the soil - the top layer of soil can be slightly dry and the soil below should be a bit moist, but not wet, when watering again. Squeeze a bit of soil between your fingers - if water seeps out it’s still wet.

  • Fertilizing need: Medium demand

    Plants can't only survive on water, they need nutrients too. To keep your plant nice and thriving, it’s important that you add fertilizer every now and then. You can find more info below how to best fertilize this plants.
