The Q&A Archives: Dipladenia

Question: I cannot find any written info on this plant in any of my AHS encyclopedias or other gardening books (maybe I don't have the right book but I have many extensive ones). I am requesting growing info and general info. This plant was a gift and did not have a tag. Currently I have it in a pot indoors near a grow light. I do not have great window exposure.

Answer: Dipladenia is a popular flowering houseplant that can be grown as a climber, or pruned back to grow as a bushy plant. The plant has glossy leaves and produces pink flowers, usually trumpet shaped and 3" across. Provide average household temperatures (minimum 55F in winter), bright light (but no direct sunlight), regular water during spring and summer but water sparingly during winter months, and mist the plant regulary while it's blooming.
