Incense: A Touch of Aroma and Elegance

History of Incense

Did you know that your home can smell like incense without having to burn a single stick? This enchanting fragrance comes from the Plectranthus coleoides 'Marginatus' plant, an aromatic variety appreciated for its gentle scent throughout history. Native to tropical regions, incense has been used for centuries in rituals and ceremonies, giving it an air of mysticism and spirituality.


Incense, scientifically known as Plectranthus coleoides 'Marginatus', is a plant that adapts beautifully to the interior of your home. With a growth ranging from 50 to 60 centimeters, it's the perfect choice for growing in pots, adding a touch of elegance to any corner. Its distinctive feature is its soft fragrance, which will fill your home with relaxing and pleasant scents.


Incense is a plant that thrives on natural light. Place it in a spot where it receives ample indirect light, and you'll see how its leaves maintain their health and color. Ensure that the room temperature is suitable, preferably between 18°C and 24°C.


Incense should be watered moderately, more frequently during the warm summer months. Ensure the substrate has good drainage to prevent the roots from becoming waterlogged, which could lead to rot issues. Allow the top layer of the substrate to dry before watering again. A good tip is to check the moisture of the substrate by inserting a finger to the first joint. If it feels dry at that depth, it's time to water.


Pruning incense is simple. In late winter, you can trim its foliage to give it a more compact shape or to remove any unruly growth. This will encourage lusher growth and keep the plant looking elegant.


Incense prefers temperate climates, making it an ideal choice for indoor cultivation in regions with cold winters. Ensure it's protected from cold drafts and temperatures below 10°C. If the climate in your area is warmer, you can consider placing it in a partially shaded outdoor area.
