How to Care for Dipladenia Plant
What type of light is best for Dipladenia?
If indoors, select a well-lit area for your Dipladenia, but not in direct sunlight. Dipladenia enjoys fresh 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 Dipladenia?
We recommend fertilizing your Dipladenia climbing vine plant every two weeks during the blooming season with an all purpose fertilizer. To cut down the number of times you fertilize your plant, we suggest using a slow release fertilizer for upkeep.
How do I water Mandevilla plants?
Surprisingly, this tropical vine is drought-tolerant and can sustain itself in dry soil. We suggest watering Dipladenia 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 and root rot.
How do I plant Dipladenia?
Dipladenia is usually an indoor flowering plant in cooler climates, but it can be grown outdoors. If potted, we suggest wearing gloves and re-potting every 1 to 2 years prior to the spring blooming season. If planting outdoors, it’s best to do so during the spring. Mandevilla and Dipladenia plants can be placed in hanging baskets to show off their gorgeous blooms.
As mentioned, this plant is native to South America so it’s best to grow this tropical plant outdoors in temperatures of at least 70°F. Dipladenia plants will die outdoors or overwintered indoors if temperatures drop under 50°F for long periods of time.
