Bea,

For best results with a Mandevilla place it in full sun and keep the soil moist. The large pot is fine, but you will need to be extra careful that you are not keeping the soil too wet as saturated conditions excludes oxygen from the roots leading to root death and problems with root rot diseases. Fertilize the plant monthly with a complete soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro at the label rate.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
