Vetiveria zizanioides also called Khas Khas, Khas, or khus grass is native to India. It is a densely tufted grass. It can grow up to 1.5 meters high with long, thin and rigid leaves. The grass grows well in rich marshy soil that is found throughout the plains and lower hills of India, especially on the riverbanks. The plant is different from the other grass forms. One such thing is that instead of having mat-like root systems, it befits in growing downwards and can grow up to 2-4 meters in depth.
