Teehee, please take no offence, I am cold-intolerant. Cold is below 75* farenheit. I almost didn't live through my childhood in Virginia from sunlight deprivation.

Anyway, does anyone have a Mandevella vine that lives dormant in a bright basement until spring again? I'm trying to help someone who's never done this before.

Thanks in advance!!

No, but I have one that lives in my "hut" that gets turned into a makeshift gh for the winter sometime in Nov. thru March. So far it's made it! It doesn't go dormant, but our winters only get down to 28 for a few hours at a time.

I understand the Virgina living. We were landlocked for about four and a half years in the Woodbridge area in the early seventies! It was wonderful to get back to warmer weather and the wonderful salt air!
