My medinilla is in bad shape. The green stalks have turned brown and the flowers are dying before they open. What can I do?
It is planted in a large pot and throughout the winter sits in an east facing window. My apartment is quite warm. I have brought this plant outside onto my deck. I live in Toronto and the weather has been very moist. If I can not save this plant is there anyway that I can propagate it? Please let me know and thank you so much for your help! Very few people are familiar with this type of plant in Toronto.
