Mandavilla Sun Parasol ‘Pretty Pink’

Should I water the leaves as well as the soil? I live in Taos, NM where we have warm/hot dry winds. Since this is a tropical plant, should I water the leaves as well as the soil?

No, avoid splashing the leaves with water while watering your plant.

If in the case that you have pests on your plant, you can use the hose to spray off the leaves and dislodge the pests.
