About: Citronella Odomas Plant, scientifically known as Cymbopogon nardus, has gained global recognition for its distinctive lemon-like scent and diverse applications. Vermi Organics is pleased to offer Odomas, a carefully cultivated variety that embodies the essence of Citronella. Native to Southeast Asia, this perennial grass has become a popular choice for both ornamental and functional purposes, contributing to the green revolution in gardens around the world.

Benefits: Odomas, or Citronella Odomas Plant, is celebrated not only for its aromatic charm but also for its potential insect-repelling properties. The natural oils present in its leaves have been traditionally used to ward off mosquitoes and other pesky insects, making it a valuable addition to outdoor spaces. Beyond its insect-repelling capabilities, Citronella enhances the visual appeal of gardens and patios, creating a refreshing and inviting atmosphere.

Type of Plant: Citronella, or Odomas, is primarily an outdoor plant, thriving in warm climates with well-draining soil and abundant sunlight. While it flourishes in outdoor settings, it can adapt to indoor cultivation if provided with sufficient light. This makes Odomas a versatile choice for various gardening preferences.

Care: Optimal care for your Citronella plant involves considerations that ensure its health and vibrancy. Plant it in well-draining soil and provide regular watering, allowing the soil to dry out between sessions. Odomas prefers full sunlight but can tolerate partial shade. Pruning helps maintain its shape and encourages new growth, while occasional fertilization during the growing season supports overall plant vigor.
