I found this little text in my book of plants:

Medinilla (Melastomataceae)
Genus of evergreen shrubs and scrambling climbers. Frost tender, min. 16-18
Needs partial shade and humus-rich, well-drained soil. Water potted plants
freely when in full growth, moderately at other times.
Propagate by greenwood cuttings in spring or summer.
