Graveolens is extremely easy to grow. Give it a 4"-clay pot, well-draining soil (any commercial potting mix will do), and a position in full sun or bright light, and it will flourish almost too well.
Provide water whenever the surface soil approaches dryness. I feed mine twice-monthly with a low-nitrogen formula (such as Jack’s Classic 12-36-14). Prune your plants frequently to keep it house-sized—it is a rapid grower.
