  • Love, love, love this plant. Easy to grow, grows quickly and when a leaf falls off, put it in dirt and another plant grows! Plus, we love just rubbing the leaves to enjoy the fabulous smell. Brought them in
    the house for winter, so far, so good!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Lovely plant that is easy to grow. We have named it the 'pet-me-plant' because it is so aromatic. Can't help but brush the leaves when you walk past this beauty. Will bush out if you pinch the leaves periodically. I gave cuttings to everyone at work; it propagates easily also. Need to find another one since it doesn't enjoy cold winters.

  • I love this plant. I frequently go to them just to smell the fragrance. They have thrived on a table in front of a west window. Easy care.
