How to Care for Red Mandevilla Plant
Before you buy a Red Mandevilla plant, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
What type of light is best for Red Mandevilla?
If indoors, select a well-lit area for your Mandevilla, but not in direct sunlight. Mandevilla enjoys humid air so place it outside during the summer for best results. If planting outdoors, select a spot that gets a bit of shade throughout the day.
How do I fertilize Red Mandevilla?
We recommend fertilizing your Mandevilla climbing vine plant every two weeks during the blooming season with an all purpose fertilizer.
How do I water Red Mandevilla?
Surprisingly, this tropical vine is drought-tolerant and can sustain itself in dry soil. We suggest watering Mandevilla once a week, but check that the soil is dry ½ inch (if potted) or 1 to 2 inches (in the ground) before watering. If you’ve recently re-potted this plant, water in small amounts every 5 days for about a month. If your plant has wilted or sagging leaves, stunted growth, or lower brown leaves it’s a sign that your plant is under-watered. Be sure to not over-water your plant to avoid downy mildew.
How do I plant Red Mandevilla?
Mandevilla is usually an indoor plant in cooler climates, but it can be grown outdoors. If potted, we suggest repotting every 1 to 2 years prior to the spring blooming season. If planting outdoors, it’s best to do so during the spring. As mentioned, this plant is native to South America so it’s best to grow outdoors in temperatures of at least 70°F. Mandevilla plants will die outdoors if temperatures drop under 50°F for long periods of time.
