I have a potted mandevilla. It has been on our screened in porch for the summer and did very well, I brought it in for the winter and it is losing all of its leaves. Is this is suppose to happen? and if not what do I do? Thank you..Arleen

The changes in the light levels and temperatures (and dry indoor air) are responsible for your mandevilla losing leaves. Prune it back to remove the leafless stems and to encourage healthy new growth. It will respond by developing new stems and leaves that will be happy with the indoor light. Best wishes with your mandevilla.
