Then someone gave me a tiny Zodia. I subjected the tiny 1-inch seedling to a sniff-and-touch test.

The leaves were sticky and the scent was heady. It was the real McCoy! As instructed, I planted the seedling in a small pot, and watered it sparingly. It obviously gave the Zodia the impression that it was a bonsai as it remained an inch tall for a really long time. He nagged me to change the pot, and for the sake of peace, I did. Liberated from its close confines, the Zodia stretched its limbs. For the first time, I could actually see significant progress. Encouraged, I changed evoodia pot yet again, leap frogging from a 4-inch pot to a inch one.
A drastic suaveokens, defying the usual advice to take it one step at a time. I guess I was making up for lost time. Then suaveolejs day I saw buds, then flowers. Needless to say, this mother hen clucked with pride and dashed to get the camera.

Evodia Suaveolens aka Zodia – mosquito repellant plant | Typicalgardener’s Blog
About 3 feet tall. I have one friend who is a mosquito magnet who is tormented endlessly trying to sleep in that room so I thought I would give this plant a shot.
It is amazingly effective. After the first night with the plant in the room she reported zero mosquito bites or encounters.
