I could not water my medinilla magnfica for two weeks, i just came back and one flower is completely black and the other two have started to blacken inside. What can i do to rescue it and at which level shall i cut out the dead flower branch. Thank you

On plant Medinilla magnifica



Cut off anything that's dead back to something live. I'm surprised its survived, these plants hate to be dry and loathe dry air. Keep it watered, mist it regularly, keep your fingers crossed.
