Flowering Plant With Pink Blooms

Barbara Asks:

my father recently visited Holland and returned with an indoor plant for my mother. He thinks it is called a mydynella  or mytynella? It has large sword like leaves and huge pendulus pink blooms. Any clues as to what it might be would be very welcom many thanks

Brock’a reply: There is a plant which is commonly sold in Holland called Medinilla magnifica which has very showy, pendulous, pink flowers.  I would not describe the foliage as “sword-like” however.  Medinilla is a woody-stemmed, shrubby plant, with pairs of glossy, leathery leaves arranged oppositely along the stem. Medinillaprefers a rich, loamy soil which is kept moist but not wet. Native to the Phillipines, it thrives in bright light and a warm and relatively humid environment.
