Drooping citronella plant

Zone 19003 | vrs110 added on June 28, 2017 | Answered

I purchased a citronella plant that was doing quite well until it was knocked over during a storm. I have since repotted it and tied it to a stake, but it still seems very droopy. Is there anything I can do to nurse it back to health?

The roots were likely disturbed and you can treat it like it was a new plant.
Keep the soil moist but avoid dry or soggy soil.
You can prune it back to help the size and recovery.
You can also easily propagate the cuttings.
