I recently purchased this plant on the famous action site. I fear however, that it may already be in jeopardy. Because it is so small I believed that it required high humidity like the micro mini sinninigias, so I placed a glass over it; however, it is an African Violet and I understand that they do not require humidity. I am at a loss and do not wish to loose this plant so quickly. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to grow. The seller suggested that I contact a local African Violet organization which I plan to do after finding and joining one. Thank you for any help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I grew them for years and never gave them extra humidity. And I live in Minnesota with very very dry winter air. I did grow them from seed, though, so they were acclimated from the start. For you, the greenhouse where the plant was grown surly had high humidity. To acclimatize, I would suggest keeping it in an open clear bag for a week or so when you get it, then remove the bag and the plant should do well on its own.

Thank you!!!! As I continue to search the internet I am collecting information bit by bit. This is helpful in terms of understanding acclimation of the plant.
