As cooler weather approaches, it's time to prepare your Mandevilla for winter. Prune back your plant, check for pests, and move it indoors before the first frost to ensure it thrives next season.

Preparing Your Mandevilla for Winter

Mandevilla plants can handle temperatures in the high 40s (Fahrenheit), but they thrive best when protected from the cold. Overwintering indoors or in a garage can keep them healthy until spring.

Winter Temperature Tolerance

Keep your Mandevilla in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight and away from drafts. Water sparingly to keep the soil lightly damp and avoid fertilizing until growth resumes in spring.

Indoor Care Through the Cold Months

Green Curved Line

Watch out for pests like red spider mites during indoor winter care. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil spray at the first sign of infestation to keep your plant healthy and ready for spring.

Pests and Diseases Vigilance

Gradually reintroduce your Mandevilla to the outdoors when the frost risk passes, starting with shaded areas and slowly moving to more sunlight. This careful transition ensures your Mandevilla blooms beautifully in the warmer months.
