Remove your Mandevilla from the box and put it outside. The sun is an important source of energy and will help your plant grow and bloom.
Feel free to repot your Mandevilla (click here to find out how!). Always use a pot with drainage holes so excess water can drain away.

Find the perfect spot for your Mandevilla in your garden or on your terrace or balcony. Remember: Mandevillas love sunshine!
Water your Mandevilla once a week (if it hasn’t rained).
As you know, Mandevillas are easy plants to care for. However, a little extra attention will make them grow stronger and flower longer! Good nutrients can make a world of difference. In our care blog, we explain the difference between granular and liquid fertilisers and recommend specific brands. A happy Mandevilla will grow tall and strong.
