whats that got to do with my question? East of England

On plant Medinilla



This is a tropical plant that requires temperatures no lower than 60 degrees in the winter, and also requires high humidity, so even as a houseplant, it can suffer. Does best in a heated greenhouse. Your question is a bit weird - what has what got to do with your question??

Thank you so much for your help, I simply found it strange being asked where I live but then realised of course it would help, I thought I had deleted it, but hadn't, thank you again.

I sort of understand - didn't realise anyone had asked where you live though, but yes, it is something you'd need to know about if giving advice. Good luck with your plant.
