Medinilla magnifica | Showy | Philippine orchid | 20_Seeds


This is 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. Medinilla magnifica 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 brush footed family. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11.

Tacca nivea | White Bat Flower | Bat Head Lily | 20_Seeds


This is Tacca nivea, also known as White Bat Flower, Bat Head Lily, and Devils Whiskers. This plant likes to be in the shade with no direct sunlight and it needs high humidity so you can use a rock tray to have standing water around the base of this plant, but not touching the pot itself or getting into the mix. We just want more water in the air around this plant. The bloom is extraordinary with the giant white blossoms shading a group of dangling seed pods, and then the cats whiskers get to be about 2 feet long on a mature plant. Not only does this have a spectacular bloom, but the large deeply veined leaves are also impressive. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11
