Is location relevant? Time period?

Does the plant also repel non-adult humans? Are they afraid of it? Grossed out? Enraged? Does it cause pain or itching? Can a single "it" repel a human? Multiple humans? All at once? Or do you need multiple plant parts to repel multiple humans?

Is it dangerous? Poisonous? Can it actually physically hurt someone?
Anything to do with its smell? Taste? Appearance? Texture? Does it attract something relevant? Does it mimic something relevant? Is it a sign of something relevant? Or is it repellent in and of itself?

Is it poison ivy/oak? An onion?

Is it a domesticated plant, or wild? If it is dead, can it still repel?

Is location relevant? No. Time period? No.

Does the plant also repel non-adult humans? No. Are they afraid of it? Grossed out? Enraged? Does it cause pain or itching? None of the above. Can a single "it" repel a human? Multiple humans? All at once? Or do you need multiple plant parts to repel multiple humans? A single "it" can repel one or multiple humans for a period of time.

Is it dangerous? Poisonous? Can it actually physically hurt someone? No to all.
Anything to do with its smell? Taste? Taste is relevant, but not to the effect. Appearance? Texture? Does it attract something relevant? Does it mimic something relevant? Is it a sign of something relevant? No to all. Or is it repellent in and of itself? Noish - it's not a repellant, but...

Is it poison ivy/oak? An onion? No.

Is it a domesticated plant, or wild? Domesticated. If it is dead, can it still repel? It is killed in the process.
