Oh that Medinilla is beautiful! If you ever want to do some trading for a cutting please let me know! Is it fragrant?

Thanks you all! Zoe, not fragrant and I am trying to figure out how to root cutting of her.....so far no luck.

Bali, they are not hardy, I keep her indoor this past winter. One thing I just find out about this plant couple months ago; does not like direct sun even morning sun here (zone 7). I left it outside on shaded area where only gets morning sun and all of the leaves got burnt. It is growing new shoots though.

I did a little research and the best way to propagate this plant is by leaf cuttings .. since it doesn't have a petiole, the stem that goes from the main stem to the leaf, you'll want to cut off a leaf from the main stem then stick the cut end into some potting medium .. or, since it has split veins you can lay the whole leaf on the surface of some potting medium then take a sharp blade and cut across the veins. Make sure the cuts are in contact with the potting medium - you can use bobby pins punched through the leaf into the potting medium to hold them down. Begonias are propagated this way.

Been there, than that without luck. I will keep trying though when she gets more growth. I will try on the seeds too, maybe I will have better luck with it.
