Medinillas (sometimes called "Philippine Orchids" or "Chandelier Plants") are stunning epiphytes from tropical and subtropical countries. These plants are grown for their spectacular grape-like pendulous flowers and beautiful foliage. Medinilla myriantha is a large species with luscious big leaves and spectacular pink flowers that turn to pink-purple berries.
Medinillas like warm, humid positions with bright indirect light indoors or a shaded spot outdoors. Drainage is key with this plant, so they make perfect container plants. Be careful not to overwater, particular in the cooler months.
The plants we have for sale are growing in 175mm pots with stems 30-40cm high. They are just coming into flower, so you will have weeks to enjoy their display.
For Mother's Day gifts, order your plant online to pick-up in store, or we can deliver it for a flat low $5 fee for local deliveries (within 5km of our store in Yeerongpilly) or $20 elsewhere in Brisbane or Ipswich. This year, we will be making local deliveries on Friday and Saturday (7-8 May) to make sure that your Mum wakes up with a beautiful flowering plant this Mother's Day. We can also add a card with a personal message for your Mum - just leave your message in the notes with your order.
We deliver our products locally and interstate, except for Western Australia, Tasmania or the Northern Territory for quarantine reasons. Local deliveries are made most days; while plants requiring shipping are posted on Mondays to minimise the time in transit, and all other items within 2 business days of receiving your order.
