Overwintering tips
Rio dipladenias may not survive in regions where temperatures drop below 45 degrees F or 7 degrees C in winter. Bring your plants indoors in fall to overwinter them. Place your Rios close to a window that receives all-day sunlight. Make sure the temperature remains above 45 degrees F or 7 degrees C. Dipladenias only need watering when the top 2 inches (5cm) of soil begin to dry. Some foliage may die, but your Rios should produce new foliage in spring. Rio dipladenias come pre-fertilized but plants that have been over-wintered can be fertilized once in May and once in August, with slow-release 18-6-12 fertilizer. Do not fertilize during winter as dipladenias' natural rest period lasts from October to April.
