Of Interest: Woven into heavy blinds and screens, the wiry, fibrous roots darken the windows of homes in the burning noon of summer. Constantly doused with water, the cool, sweet scent of their vapour turns scorching winds that dehydrate into moist and balmy breezes. Because its fragrance repels insects, women from India and Java cherish vetiver fans. Sanskrit texts refer to its use as an unguent for anointing brides.
Growing the plant protects against soil erosion.
