Medinilla is a tropical shrub that can grow up to 4 ft. tall. It grows like epiphytic orchids, in holes and crotches of trees. Unlike orchids, though, Medinilla does not feed on the trees it grows from. Medinilla has large succulent green leaves. In late spring to early summer, the plant is covered by drooping clusters of delicate pink flowers that look somewhat like grapes or wisteria flowers.
Watering: 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.
