Medinilla Magnifica Bloom Help

Posted by ThatAdeniumGuy none (My Page) on

I've had this plant for 2 months now, it has 2 buds and the plant is thriving and growing leaves with deep rich pink undertones and waxy green leaves with red edging trim, just one problem. How long do the blooms take to open? It's been 2 months and nothing has happened, absolutely nothing. Their are no signs of change, no deterioration, the no unraveling of the pink cover-thingy... The blooms are big, long, they look healthy, but their just not opening! What's going on? This is a large plant that has bloomed previously and in a 7.5" pot, purchased from Hirt's.

RE: Medinilla Magnifica Bloom Help

I got one of these plants early last Spring, and it was in bloom at the time. The blooms lasted a very long time without changing, then they gradually started to lose petals. After that, another set of leaves came out. Now, it has been at that stage for a few months, not really growing nor deteriorating. Sorry I can't be of more help, I haven't been able to find very much information on them online. Good luck with yours.
