I bought a plant that is called a mandivill it is from hawaii I have had so many comments on how beautiful it is. I would like to know how to propogate it? Can I take a cutting off and root it in soil or in water? I was told that they like sun it has been outside in full sun all summer and has done well I am not sure where to put for the winter in bright sunny window or not so bright as they may require a rest period? Any information on this beautiful plant would help as Idon't want to kill it. thak you Linda
In the Autumn, I dig the mandevilla vine up and bring it indoors for the winter. It does fine.... I don't have unlimited room indoors, I really don't need more than one! By not cutting it back, it continues to bloom through the winter.

Mandevilla plant can be easily propagated from cuttings to make new plants. The best time to take cuttings is in the spring but they can also be taken in summer or fall. Take 2-3 ” tip or side shoot cuttings that have new growth that is beginning to firm (not new light green growth) remove all but the 2 top leaves. Dip the cuttings in rooting hormone and place in sandy peat soil mix. Keep the cuttings moist and humid with bottom heat of 68-77F (20-25C). To maintain humidity, place them in a plastic bag (opening periodically to release excess moisture) . Keep cuttings in shaded area, out of direct sunlight. It can take 20-70 days to root.
