Mandevilla loves lots of sun so the spot you have yours in should be good. A little break from the hot mid-to-late day sun is dead. Water is enough to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. How often you water will therefore depend on container size, soil type, and temperature. I suspect you will need to water at least twice a week, maybe more.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
