For a correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring. Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Mandevilla sanderi in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
Generalities Mandevilla sanderi
The Mandevilla sanderi develops like a shrub. This plant in the spring assumes a red colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 3 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. It has a climber development, for a correct development it is best to place these plants near a support on which they can develop themselves.
Fertilization Mandevilla sanderi
In the spring letís use a fertilizer every 15-20 days, melting it in the water which we use to irrigate; we can choose a fertilizer for flowering plants or green plants, rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour a balanced development of the new vegetation. Otherwise we can, if we want to, use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil, every 3-4 months.
Watering Mandevilla sanderi
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks . To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.
Treatments Mandevilla sanderi
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Soil Mandevilla sanderi
These plants need to be grown in a soil which isnít too drained. Every 2-3 years we should change the soil and place the plant in a larger container.
