No Mandevilla Flowers: Getting A Mandevilla Plant To Bloom
A mandevilla vine (Mandevilla spp. ) is a popular tropical plant, grown for its attractive and showy flowers. It has big, trumpet-shaped blooms with colors that range from white to yellow to pink and lavender.
You will find them draping over porches and railing or draped over the sides of hanging baskets. They will also climb up trellises to cover the walls. You will find them in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are usually a little on the vine-like side but some of the newer varieties are smaller and bushier.
When planting mandevilla flowers, you usually have several choices. You can plant the flowers in hanging baskets or you can let the vines run along the ground or climb up a trellis or other support. They can be grown outdoors or indoors.
How To Plant A Hanging Mandevilla Flower Pot:
1) You will need a 6 to 10 inch pot that has been cleaned and disinfected.
Fill it with a well-draining potting soil that does not contain vermiculite or perlite.
2) Carefully remove the mandevilla vine from its container and immediately place the vine in the prepared pot.
Add soil and firm it around the root ball. Tamp it down to remove all air pockets.
3) Water the mandevilla plant well.
If you are placing this vine in a hanging basket, you will need to place a hook somewhere for the vine to be able to hang. You should prune about 1/3 of the vine off before placing it in the hanging basket.
4) Place the hanging vine where it will receive full sun and some indirect light.
The mandevilla vine will vine away with its roots hidden in the soil in the pot.
Mandevilla plants are tropical plants and will not tolerate frost or freezing temperatures. If you live in an area that may experience a freeze, you should bring the mandevilla inside before the first expected frost in the autumn.
How To Care For Your New Mandevilla Vine:
1) When caring for a mandevilla, you should place the planted container in a location that receives partial sun and some indirect light.
Although they can tolerate full sun, they will do better with a little less sun.
2) The soil around the mandevilla should be kept evenly moist.
You can water the plant from underneath to allow the soil to retain more moisture.
3) Fertilize with a well-draining houseplant fertilizer that is high in nitrogen.
Use at half strength. If the fertilizer has directions for flowering plants, follow those rates.
4) You can prune the plant after it flowers.
Start by cutting off any dead or diseased branches and then cut back to just above an inward facing bud. That will encourage the mandevilla vine to put out many side branches.
5) If you notice that the leaves are starting to turn yellow, that means that the plant is getting too much sun.
Move it to a shadier location.
6) Be aware that mandevilla vines can get very long vines.
You may need to place a trellis up high for it to be able to grow up. On the other hand, it will also creep across the ground if that is where it can reach.
7) If you are growing it indoors in a container, be sure to fertilize and keep it watered as described.
It should remain fairly small in size as long as you prune off any flower trusses so it uses its energy to grow more roots and leaves and not fruit.
Most people like the flowers of the plant and choose to allow it to bloom. The flowers are usually a variety of red, pink or white and they can have a slight fragrance. If the proper care is followed, the mandevilla vine can live for several years in a container and produce flowers for most of that time.
Add some tropical beauty to your home with a mandevilla vine by following the easy instructions above.
