MEDINILLA MYRIANTHA
Malaysian Grapes

A very pretty tropical plant great for the shade and containers. It can grow well as a house plant as well if you give it the right conditions. This medinilla is an epiphyte in nature, like orchids, therefore the potting soil has to be porous. I suggest that you get a good quality potting soil and mix about 1/3 of an orchid mix (bark, perlite, charcoal.) This medinilla has very pretty flowers. They start off a light pink color and start turning a darker magenta and finally the flowers turn into dark purple resembling "berries" or "grapes." Although they do look like grapes, they are not edible. This medinilla blooms a lot and you can see flowers almost year round. The foliage is also very pretty, nice glossy green leaves. It is best to avoid freezing temperatures.
