Medinilla magnifica | Showy | Philippine orchid


Here I am offering Seeds from Medinilla magnifica, also known as Showy Medinilla. This tropical flower is very fun to look at. It is a tender perennial that can get about 6 feet high in regions where it can thrive. It can be grown indoors which is a good thing because there are not many locations in the US where this plant can survive the winter outside. Medinilla magnifica likes to live in light shade, and when outside it is a very popular plant with birds, bees, butterflies, and humans. Showy Medinilla blooms from late Spring until the middle of the Summer. This really makes for a great house plant. This is a nectar plant for a group of butterflies called the longwings or heliconians. They are a group of butterflies inside the bushy footed family. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11

Here I am offering Seeds from Medinilla magnifica, also known as Showy Medinilla. This is a tropical shrub with woody branched stems. This tropical flower is very fun to look at. It is a tender perennial epiphyte shrub that can get about 6 feet high in regions where it can thrive. An epiphyte grows on another tree for support but does not draw any nutrition from the tree like a parasite would. A epiphyte can live off of nutrients that it takes directly from the air and rain. Many epiphytes are house plants because of their minimal requirements for soil and water.

Here I am offering Seeds from Medinilla myriantha, also known as Malaysian Orchid, and Malaysian Grapes. This plant grows to about 4 feet tall and likes to live in light shade.
