I kept my white Mandevilla inside last winter, brought the whole pot in a cool basement with a little window and kept it from completely drying out. It pulled through and rebounded once it went outside in spring, and did great. Now it is climbing up a six foot bamboo stake and I have to decide how much to cut off, and bring the pot in again.
Update, 11-2020-- Mandevilla rebounded and grew well this summer in a pot. Needed frequent watering.. upon pulling it now after a month drying out I find it really did not grow roots out much or fill the pot, which may explain why drying affected it so quickly. I took a few long thin, green cuttings end of summer and put them in water. One has rooted, and I potted it today. I will take more cuttings, use hormone, and pot them, but am going to let this 3 or 4 year old plant go- it has orange aphids and I don't need to bring any more of those in than I may have already.

Bought 2 plants from Walmart. 1 pink, 1 red. Even though mandevilla is supposed to be a vine, the ones I bought look more like a bush.
