The Q&A Archives: Allamanda

Question: Should I put my Allamanda outdoors after risks of frost are past? It is having trouble indoors.

Answer: Allamanda is a spectacular, but difficult plant to grow indoors. It requires heat and humidity, and lots of sunlight to thrive. Don't put it outdoors until you're sure summer has arrived and nighttime temperatures remain above 60F degrees. Here are some general guidelines for growing Allamanda indoors: Keep the plant warm - minimum 60F in the winter. Give it direct sunshine, water moderately from spring to autumn, then water sparingly during the winter. Surround the pot with damp peatmoss and mist the foliage daily. Hope the above helps guide you to the successful recovery of your Allamanda.
