A Patchouli plant is an herb with aromatic leaves which have a pungent smell. They are commonly used in perfumes, cosmetics, herbal medicines and foods. Because of its peculiar smell, the plant is

Where to Buy a Patchouli Plant?
If you’re looking for patchouli plants, you might start your search at a local plant nursery. There are many independent gardening stores (garden centers) that carry patchouli plants.
Alternatively, you can check your local Walmart or Target.
But, there is a good chance that you will not find these plants in your local stores. Therefore, the easiest way to buy Patchouli plants is to buy them online. You can buy these plants from a wide variety of online sources including Amazon, eBay, and Etsy.
Amazon has a wide selection of plants for sale and they offer free shipping with
Amazon Prime membership. They also have an easy-to-use website that makes it easy to search for items by category or keyword.
How Are Patchouli Plants Sold?
Patchouli plants for indoor growing or for planting in the garden are available on Amazon and other online stores, for around $10. There is always some concern with buying plants online, mainly the shipping and handling procedures, but the sellers make sure the plants are well wrapped to avoid damage and have
moisture retention in the soil.
However, it is important to purchase the plants from a trusted supplier and to buy a product that has a high number of positive ratings on these online stores.
Otherwise, you may not be able to get one that is very fresh, and its quality will be compromised.
Outdoors, they grow best in warm, damp conditions without full sun. Indoors, keep them in a pot away from full sun and water regularly keeping the soil damp all the time.
You can buy it either in the form of seeds or in the form of a plant.
Patchouli can be grown from seeds which can be purchased online or from a garden center. The seeds are first planted in trays and when the seedlings start to grow they can be transferred to a pot for indoors or outside in a warm, shady spot.
If you want to buy or sell a patchouli plant online, you can use local Facebook buy sell groups or Craigslist. Verify that the plant is genuine if you plan to use these platforms.
