Q.My indoor medinilla has 4 wilted leaves on one stock. Can I cut? If so where?

The plant was small when I bought it in flower. It had a tag on it that read “I like it dry”. I grow orchids also. I know not to over water. I followed the instructions that I read about at that time, but it didn’t include misting. I have had the plant for about one and a half years. The wilting began recently. Up to then the plant seemed to do well in a bright location with some other plants like hibiscus and geraniums.

Yes, you can cut it back, but leave one set of leaves on the stalk or it will die back completely.
