Kick starting mandevillas
Thank you for answering part of my question, but I need a little more information on what type of grow lights I need to use. I have 11 mandevillas in hanging baskets in my cellar and cannot bring them up into the house to give them the sunlight they need right now. I would like to start them down cellar on grow lights. Can you tell me what kind of lights I should use? Please try to give me specifics as to what I should buy, as I know nothing about grow lights or taking care of these beautiful flowers. I did cut them back in the fall and they are dormant now, but I am hoping that putting them under grow lights will wake them up so they will flower for me by June when I can put them outside again. Thank you
