Who am I?
Hello, my botanical name is Eucalyptus Citriodora, but I am more commonly known as the lemon eucalyptus. I owe my name to my strong Cintronella scent, which can be smelled immediately after germination! My oil is used worldwide as an anti-mosquito and protects for up to 4 hours with an effectiveness of 97%, so I am a real power plant!

Where do I come from?
originally i am from the northeastern part of australia where belong to the koala diet. Although I am a tree species, I also do very well in a pot in living rooms all over the world.

How big will I get?
Because I am a tree species I can grow very tall and my natural habitat can reach up to 40 meters high. The growth in a pot will limit me to about 2 meters.

How much do I want to drink?
I like high humidity and I like to be in slightly moist soil, so water me regularly! Don't let the soil dry out, I can handle a period of drought but my leaves will wilt. I recover myself, but my withered leaves no longer do this.

Where do I want to stand and what temperatures do I like?
I usually love a lot of light, so I like to be in full sun! However, watch out when there is a very strong sun, then I can burn, especially when I stand behind the glass.
