Introducing the Medinilla Magnifica
Written by Canadian Florist

medinilla_high_res_webMay 10, 2012 — The Medinilla Magnifica is the newest houseplant to arrive in Canada.

Originating in the mountains of the Philippines, the Medinilla Magnifica is an epiphyte — a plant that grows on other trees but does not withdraw its food from them like parasites do. The plant's pink flowers can grow to a length of approximately 50 cm.

As a rule, Medinillas can tolerate direct sunlight from Nov. 1 to March 1. Throughout the rest of the year, the plants should be kept out of direct sunlight in order to avoid burning the leaves. The Medinilla Magnifica prefers temperatures ranging from 17C to 25C.
