Pelargonium citrosum, commonly known as Mosquito plant, is highly recommended for repelling mosquitoes. This plant is specially developed to continually give off a mosquito repelling scent similar to citronella. While keeping the plant indoors, remember to water occasionally. In outdoors conditions, the plant is fairly drought resistant.

Soil for Mosquito Plant
Mosquito plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.
All plants depend on light for their survival and making sure your Mosquito plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group Mosquito plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
