Medinilla Dolce Vita


This exceedingly rare houseplant is a sight to behold as its pendulous, bubble-gum pink flowers, measuring up to 20cm in length, cascade over the side of a pot. Considered one of the most glamorous houseplants on earth, Medinilla magnificent performs best in tall pots and each stunning flower represents a year of growth, so this plant should be viewed as an investment. This piccolini variety has been bred to remain compact, so it’s perfect for smaller spaces. Supplied as a three-year-old plant in a 15cm pot.

Additional Information

Moderately water, be careful not to give to much. The soil in the pot should always be dry to the touch before you water them again. Water from the bottom, letting them soak for approximately 10 minutes, then allow the plant to drain the excess water before putting it back in its location. Do not fertilize while it is flowering. After the flowering period, fertilizer can be given once every two weeks when the Medinilla is growing new shoots. During the winter months the plant needs a spot near a window facing south or in a conservatory to make the most of the light, as the days are short.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
