Dipladenia Plant Care & Growing Guide

Lighting Requirements: Dipladenia Sun or Shade

Dipladenia thrives with exposure to direct sunlight and prefers full sun to part shade. In hot areas, it may benefit from some afternoon shade.

Watering Needs

Diplandenia’s watering preferences depend on the time of year and whether it’s growing in a pot or in the ground. Generally, it prefers somewhat consistent moisture and well-drained soil during the growing season.

Fertilization Needs

Dipladenia’s aren’t nutrient hungry, nor any special nutrient requirements. It’s best to provide a general-purpose, slow-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season or when the plant starts to flush out and repeat, if necessary, around mid-summer. You can use a pellet fertilizer or liquid plant food.
