We came across this gorgeous plant recently and we just can't get enough of it.  It is absolutely gorgeous. It's blooms are huge and can last for up to 5 months. I found a website that has all the information you could ever need on this stunning plant.  Check it out!

"Medinilla’s are a timeless beauty that will create majestic elegance in any room. It is a very unique plant, which you can enjoy for a long time. If you give Medinilla Magnifica the correct care, which you can find on this site ( their beautiful pink flowers can grow to a length of approximately 50cm and are a joy to behold.

Medinilla magnifica finds its origin in the mountains of the Philippines. It is an epiphyte, which is a plant that grows on other trees but does not withdraw its food from those trees as parasites do. This type magnifica is the only Medinilla with splendid pink flyleaves and such a large flower.

Medinilla Magnifica prefers being a bit dry to being too wet. Allow the plant to dry out and to be light when lifted before watering the soil thoroughly. It is recommended to water your Medinilla Magnifica once every 7-10 days. Do not allow any water to remain in the bottom of the pot. The preferred method of watering is from the bottom"
