Buyer's Guide: Mosquito Plants

Mosquito Plants Buying Guide


A Mosquito Plants Buying Guide is very valuable if you are a new owner of a Mosquito Tree. Mosquitoes, in a variety of species, have been introduced to the USA from Asia and also from Africa over the last 50 years or so. Some are resistant but most cannot withstand the climatic conditions in the north and are often killed by winter. Many areas of the country have malaria prone mosquitoes and some are particularly good at biting people, mainly children. Mosquito Trees have evolved to cope with this problem, however, and it is not a major cause for them to be so successful in their life span in the north. Mosquito Trees can be bought from many garden centres and stores both locally and online, but are generally sold by specialists in the area.

The main advantage to buying a guide rather than trying to look after the tree yourself is that you will know exactly how to care for it. You should purchase a Mosquito Plants guide which has specific information about the type of tree you have bought. It may also give you general advice on the different species available as well as advice on how to raise and protect your Mosquito Tree. It is also helpful to purchase a guide because it usually contains a range of pictures which show your Mosquito in its full glory. In addition, a good Mosquito Plants guide should contain information about the diseases most common to your particular species of Mosquito.

There are many types of Mosquito Plants on the market, including Finches, Pines, Sumacs, Pomponys and even a few ornamental species. As the name suggests, Finches are small flowering plants, usually one or two inches long, which form mounds on the underside of leaves. They do not have leaves that fall off, so they are often confused with a variety of Bird of Prey called Spotted Flycatchers. Pines are a slightly larger version of Finches and belong to the family of Pines.

Sumacs are also known as Quiet Stars. These graceful, small plants are grown mainly for their flowers. They grow to about four to six inches, but bloom beautifully even after the flowers have flowered. This species of Mosquito Plant has colorful flowers that are up to three inches in diameter. They are easy to maintain and can survive harsh weather conditions.

Pomponys are another beautiful choice of Mosquito Plants for beginners. They are about three to four inches in length and grow on trees, walls and fences. Some varieties bloom in early spring and reproduce by producing little blooms throughout the year. The flowers look like tiny butterflies and when cared for properly, your Mosquito Plants will be ready to take over in the garden. They will produce more flowers until there are no more left.

Beeswax Flowers are a wonderful choice of Mosquito Plants for beginners. They produce large, showy flowers that are perfect for hanging baskets, window boxes and other containers. They do require a lot of attention, but in return you will have an amazing display of color and beauty. Beeswax also tends to last for a long time.

If you want an exotic or rare plant, you might consider getting a Java Fern. This is one of the rarest and most hard-to-find plants, but it is well worth the effort. Its fleshy taproots provide a unique way to grow a plant in your garden. This plant can grow up to three feet tall.

When you follow the advice in a Mosquito Plants buying guide, you will end up with a wonderful garden full of delightful plants. You may also meet some people from other countries who also love these plants. This is a very rewarding experience for anyone who is new to gardening. It is even better if you can help someone else avoid making common mistakes. A good guide will tell you exactly what to look for and how to care for your new garden.

FAQs: Mosquito Plants

Do mosquito plants really work?


Despite claims to the contrary, "Mosquito plants" (lemon-scented Geranium or "citronella plants") do not repel mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are repelled by the oil in the leaves. If you plant them in your garden, they will not repel mosquitoes.

How do you keep mosquito plants alive?


Water them thoroughly when the soil is dry. They can be left in direct sunlight or in partial shade. Indoor mosquito plants require a sunny window. Before watering, allow the soil to completely dry.

Can mosquito plants be kept over winter?


These plants are sensitive to frost and can die as a result. Citronella plants can be kept outside all year in warm, frost-free climates. Plants can be moved indoors in colder climates until the temperatures rise.

How do you take care of a mosquito plant?


The Citronella Mosquito Plant prefers well-drained, moderately fertile soil. It should be fertilized with water-soluble fertilizer in containers. Use compost or slow-release fertilizer when planting Citronella Mosquito Plants in the landscape.

Why is my mosquito plant yellow?


In USDA zone 7, the Citronella mosquito plant is a tender perennial. It necessitates winter protection.... Overwatering is not tolerated by these plants. Excessive watering can cause the leaves to yellow and eventually fall off the stems. If you're not sure if the mosquito plant needs water, don't water it.

How do you trim a mosquito plant?


Pinch back each stem after purchasing a mosquito plant, or when the stems are about 4 to 6 inches long. Pinch the stems with your fingers to remove any green stems. Scissors can also be used. Each stem should have at least three sets of leaves. Expect to see two to three new stems from the pinch point.
