Deze donkerroze medinilla vindt je dus niet in een gewone winkel. Hoewel een beetje huiverig om dit via internet te kopen hebben we dit toch gedaan. Ik kan niet anders zeggen dan dat het ons zeer goed is bevallen. Niet alleen zeer snel geleverd maar ook nog een stop verpakt.
Dit is voor herhaling vatbaar.

Ik ben zelf een grote liefhebber van Medinilla's en heb er één gekocht bij www.planten-kopen.com. Hoewel ik een beetje huiverig was van het bestellen van zo,n breekbare plant is het me 100 % meegevallen. Ik heb een plant besteld met 8 knoppen en bij aankomst zaten ze keurig, stevig verpakt in een Florastore doos. De plant staat prachtig. Ik ben om en ga zeker weer bestellen bij dit bedrijf.
Met vriendelijke groet,
