The Q&A Archives: candy corn plant

Question: i have it in a pot outside and i have a piece of laddes in front of it to up on but in the fall i have to trim it of the laddes to bring it in for the winter do i cut the vines at a angle?

Answer: Candy corn plant (Manettia luteorubra) can be trimmed down in late summer so you can take it indoors for the winter months. You don't need to trim the vines at an angle, cut cut it down so you can take the plant in without the trellis. It won't hurt the plant if you cut it down to 12-18 inches to take indoors. Enjoy your beautiful plant!
