The Q&A Archives: Cut off Mandevilla

Question: I just weed whacked my mandevilla. The stalk is (was) about 1/4-1/2 inch in diameter. Should I put the vine in water and what about the plant? It was planted from a 2 gallon container in August.

Answer: Ohhhh.... I know you're just sick about it. But, I think the plant will resprout. You can try rooting the severed vine in a glass of water. Keep it outdoors in a shady spot and with any luck the cutting will root. Hope it does!
