How to propagate mandevilla plants and take cuttings
This perennial vine is a gorgeous addition to a garden, but you may not have room for a mandevilla vine. Fortunately, you can propagate a mandevilla plant and take cuttings to create new vines. Propagating mandevilla plants is easy and takes very little effort.The weather outside is cold, so just about any cold-hardy perennial or annual plant can serve as a rear-guard for your home or landscape.
Although many plants can be re-pot renewed in the garden or cuttings can be grown from cuttings, they are listed here because they prefer more direct sun and often grow well in containers. My favorite indoor plant is the magic ash tree. Its large dark-green leaves are intolerable in winter but quickly turn dazzling gold when the temperature drops. Young magic ash leaves turn a deep purple when dried.
They’re excellent for making a tea, and you could find them in the herbal section of your local drugstore or spice store. This tree prefers well-drained soil and is particularly popular in containers with good drainage. You can propagate a magic ash in the same way that your mandarin or mandarin lily can be propagated. Prepare a tank of clean water, mix in some fertilizer, and spread the mixture evenly over the inner surfaces of the leaf until it forms a small raised bump.
Keep it there for a few days until the new growth emerges. Young magic ash plants are typically grown from cuttings that you may purchase. Dioecious — that is, male or female—buds form and grow vigorously in the bottle. You can collect these plants in summer when the leaves turn a vibrant orange or winter when they turn a dark purple. You can keep these plants indoors if the temperatures are cold enough, but it’s not recommended to keep them with young children, pets, or invertebrates where they could get wet and introduced to harmful bacteria.

How to plant cultivars of mandevilla and how to care for them
Plant mandevillas (sobnerastline.si/dipladenija/) in a location with full sun. In colder climes, plant mandevillas in a partially shaded location. Plant them in well-draining, fertile soil. You can also plant mandevillas in a pot. When planting in a pot, make sure the pot has drainage holes. The days are short, so most flowering is done in the evenings. Light-loving plants, such as sunflowers, need bright, filtered light at all hours. Try to plant your mandarin either in a sunny windowsill or planted in the shade.Light from a bulb will also help.
Flour and water can be added to the soil as directed by the instructions on the container or package. Temperature Requirements: Collect daily weather observations. Avoid unexpected changes in temperature, such as cold or wet nights. Many tropical varieties are susceptible to frost. For stock plants, it’s recommended to allow them to cycle their leaves over a period of 18 months from frost-free to green.
Adults only grow full-length stems at the end of the summer. Prune your mandarin back to 1/4-inch to mid-June to encourage new shoots in summer. Prune care-giving vines back to bare ground every spring until they turn bright red.
Some varieties can be sown indoors in small containers in early May. To plant seeds indoors, simply place the seeds on the surface of moist peat in water or equivalent. Allow the seeds to float to the top, and then push them down into the soil once they are covered with soil. Water the seeds regularly as they grow. When your seeds have a firm structure, carefully transfer them into their desired location.
Once seeds have germinated, remove the seed-bearing stems and place them on a clean surface to begin the process of collecting seeds. Once the seeds have germinated, simply discard the seed-bearing stems and store the seeds in a paper bag to keep them fresh for use. Harvesting-time for seeds varies depending on the variety.
