Original Message African violets
Do the "small, hard, tight rosettes of
growth" emerge from the base of the
plant? If so, they are offsets or baby
plants that can be severed and put into
their own pots.

AV's do require fertile soil, but don't
overdo the fertilizer. Freshly repotted
plants usually have more than enough
nutrients for a year or more, unless
the potting mix is a peat-based
soilless mix.
