How do I care for the Mandeville vine in winter. I've brought it in but do I cut it back and how much do I water it.

When you bring your Mandevilla indoors, give it bright light, a minimum of 55F degrees, water sparingly and mist the leaves occasionally. Growth will probably slow down while the plant is indoors and you can cut or pinch back the stems to keep the plant tidy. It will begin growing again in the early spring. I usually cut mine down when I first bring it indoors because the change in temperature and light levels often causes it to drop its leaves. Cutting it back now will help you avoid all that cleanup!
