It’s not everyday that you encounter a hard-to-find succulent like Medinilla sedifolia. If you are lucky enough to find one, you would be wise to add it to your collection! This miniature succulent grows small, round leaves in pairs on a trailing, thick stem, almost like a ladder of button-shaped steps. The dark green leaves look great when trickling over the side of a hanging basket or tumbling out of a terrarium, especially when this plant’s bright pink flowers are in bloom. Waxy to the touch and only about 1-inch in width, the magenta flowers pop up in wintertime, ready to give all who see them a much-needed respite from the cold.
Medinilla sedifolia does best in a warm, humid atmosphere. It needs regular watering in well-drained soil and craves the sun. Add this plant to a terrarium or hanging basket near a warm window. Beautiful!
