Description

This beautiful plant; Gregori Hambali Medinilla, is derived from a jungle plant from Papua New Guinea where it is a semi-epiphytic shrub. This plant is considered one of the easier medinillas to grow as it tolerates dry conditions. It grows great in porous potting mixture. With its pinkish undersides not only does it have beautiful soft leaves with a quilted appearance, but many also love this plant for its blooming abilities, which can happen several times a year.
