Oleanders have large root structures, so a large container with good drainage is necessary.
Plants can dry out easily in containers so you will need to pay close attention to watering. Daily water and even twice a day if the temperatures are above 85 degrees F.
Also check for pests and treat with Neem Oil if you see evidence.
