Pelargonium citrosum is much appreciated both due to increased rich and very beautiful appearance of the leaves and the strong scent that exudes the whole plant. It drew this perfume plant called mosquito plant. Recent research has shown, however, that this name is not justified in removing the effect of plant mosquito void. It is clear however that this fragrance because Pelargonium citrosum plants are used not only for decoration but also as a raw material in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical. Getting rich growth of plants and compact to serve both decorative purposes and as a raw material in the industries mentioned above was the objective of our research. The plants were obtained by cutting and then were applied to four different types of fertilizers. Plant growth and development was pursued both by macroscopic biometric measurements (diameter, height and weight of plant, no. of leaves) and microscopic analysis of tissue by incorporation of leaf lamina and petiole. The results of this research show that the highest values of the parameters determined (both macroscopic and microscopic ones) were recorded in the variants which fertilization was applied twice a month and nitrogen have slightly exceeded phosphorus and potassium.
