Is it normal for the little flowers "grapes" to fall off?
This is most likely caused by lack of humidity.
A high humidity is a must, mist daily and set on a tray of water and pebbles if this is an indoor plant.
I purchased this bulb from a grocery store and I love them.. but threw away the wrapper and do not know the name of it or what to do with it after its bloom is complete.. please help
This is a Medinilla plant.
I need to find the best soil and water requirements in order to re-pot a Medinilla cummingii plant that I bought. There were no instructions with the plant and so far no information is forthcoming from the grower. Please help. I don't want it to die.
Replant in a rich but light soil. Mix equal parts composted bark and coarse peat, add a small amount of composted manure. Standard potting soil should be avoided. Orchid soil can be used, preferably amended with some composted manure.
Can you tell me how to harvest seeds to plant from my medinillia? Thank you kindly, Lori
Harvesting seeds usually means letting the flower pods swell and dry before. The process is the same for most plants.

Hi there, I just recently noticed fungal gnats in my medinilla magnifica plant's soil and so I let the soil dry out. Then I read about using hydrogen peroxide to get rid of these pests and tried it. Unfortunately, I used too much I think. I used about a quarter of a cup of HP and a cup of water. Will my plant die? Is there a way to fix this?? Thanks!
It will help me to see the damage. Usually, peroxide will not cause this kind of damage at that strength. This was regular 3% wasn't it? These gnats are actually very beneficial to your plant. They eat, only, rotting material in the soil. If there were so many that you began noticing them, then this is a sign that the plant was already suffering from an infection in the roots. They will only usually fly around if the soil remains too wet for long.
It is quite possible that they were keeping an infection at bay from overwatering, and removing them allowed the infection to take over. The peroxide should help this recover. Just make sure to let the soil dry out on top before watering. This will keep the gnats in check as well.
Can you propigate Midinella from seeds from the flowers
