Light Requirements: Place the Medinilla Magnifica in a bright spot with indirect sunlight. It thrives in bright, filtered light, avoiding direct sun exposure that can scorch the leaves. A north or east-facing window is ideal. Bud drop can be caused by a lack of light, and high temperatures.
Temperature and Humidity: The Medinilla Magnifica prefers warm temperatures between 18°C and 24°C (65°F and 75°F). It appreciates higher humidity levels, so misting the leaves regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby can help create a suitable environment.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant thoroughly whenever the top inch of the soil feels dry. Ensure good drainage using a well-draining potting mix and a container with drainage holes.
Fertilizing: Feed the Medinilla Magnifica with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer formulated for flowering houseplants. Apply the fertilizer according to the manufacturer's instructions during the active growing season (spring and summer) to support healthy growth and abundant blooms.
Pruning: Remove spent flowers and dead or yellowing leaves to maintain the plant's aesthetic appeal and encourage new growth. Pruning can be done after the blooming period or throughout the year.
How tall does Medinilla Magnifica grow?
Medinilla Magnifica can grow up to 3 feet tall. However, most plants only reach about 2 feet tall.
