African Violets Are Easy To Grow

By Skiekitty
February 19, 2013

Contrary to popular belief, African Violets don't need to be babied. Don't over water them. Watering them once or twice a month is usually good enough. The most important thing to remember is not to place them in a sunny, hot window.

This Plant was 3 leaves when I rescued it. this was taken 1-10-2013. Thumb of 2013-02-19/landals/1ca025
They are always blooming. I have them Thumbs up in a clay pot so I have put saran wrap around the edge of the pot so that the leaves
and the pot do not touch. I water them from the bottom and they sit in natural sunlight.
