Medinilla magnifica is the only species grown as a houseplant, appreciated for its lush foliage and huge panicles of pink flowers.
Also known as Rose Grape or Malaysian Orchid, Medinilla magnifica is native to the Philippines where it's often found as an epiphytic form (growing on trees).
Blooms are produced in long pendulous panicles to 45 cm (18 in), having large pink petal-like bracts attached to the flower clusters. Grape-like clusters of small, pink berries follow the blooms, turning purple when ripen.
Malaysian Orchid flowers are very ornamental in hanging baskets under trees or in the shade of a terrace. Like any tropical plant, it needs bright, indirect light, increased humidity and well drained soil. Being an epiphytic plant, orchid soil can be used in pots or containers.
