Medinilla Magnifica Care

There are about 400 types of Medinillas, of which only the magnifica as a room plant was offered until recently. The family name of the Medinilla is Melastomataceae. The family contains approximately 3000 good species in the Neotropes, 240 species in Africa and 230 in Madagascar and about 1000 in Asia. Medinilla magnifica originates in the Philippines and is an epiphytic: it grows on trees in the tropical landscapes, but does not extract her food like parasites.

The Medinillas originate from the tropical zones of the ancient world, from Africa through Madagascar and South Asia to the western islands in the quiet ocean. There are 80 species of Medinilla in the Philippines, which are becoming less and more because there are fewer forests left. The genus Medinilla has its name due to J. de Medinilla, governor of the Marian Islands in 1820.
