How to Start a Violet
HI! I have a fun little tidbit I'd like to share with you. I love african violet plants and have a few in my home. They are my favourite indoor plant. Recently I had an issue with one of my violets and it wasn't going to survive...can you say children and flying objects! Well, I saved two leaves and tucked them in some soil in my pretty cup that sits on my desk. They were kept moist by frequent waterings and they have started to grow tiny little plants. This week they erupted and I'm delighted!
I am going to wait until they are about half the size of the parent leaf before I take them out and repot them. It's just wonderful that soon I'l have more violets and more lovely flowers. This particular variety is a double purple blossom one with white ruffly edges.
Do you like violets? What is your favourite variety?
Thanks for stopping in! Have a wonderful day!
