Houseplants forum: Medinilla Magnifica (pink bracts problem)

I have a beautiful Medinilla Magnifica plant which has 4 flowers. Two of the flowers are nearly opened but one has no pink bracts at all and the other one has just a few? Has anyone else had this problem? The plant looks very healthy apart from this problem. Will try and post a picture so you can see this.

Thanks in advance

Maybe the one bloom on your Pink Lantern (Medinilla magnifica) just hasn't fully opened yet?

Thanks for your reply.
In photo one there are none bractsat all and in second photo there are some showing. I have lifted the flower up and looked inside. I had this plant before and it was full of the bracts so not sure why this has happened.
I did read somewhere on the internet that this happened to someone else but no one had a answer for this. Am thinking myself the temperature might have something to do with it but not sure.
Thanks again Smiling
