The Q&A Archives: Mosquito Plant

Question: does this plant exist? if so where can i get them?

Answer: Some lemon scented or citronella scented plants have been said to have mosquito repelling qualities, however this is not a reliable repellent. The best way to limit mosquitoes is to remove all sources of standing water, including less-thought-of items such as tilted gutters, saucers under plant pots, tarps, and so on and then to wear an approvel repellent.
