African Violets were over-fertilized last year (MiracleGro) and growing great, but not blooming. What should I do?

If they are growing fine, you might just need to be patient! African Violets cycle in and of bloom all year long but usually bloom most heavily in spring and summer. To encourage them to bloom more you can try adding supplemental light for 14 to 16 hours a day along with providing them with even, moderate moisture, a bit of extra humidity and slightly warmer than average household temperatures plus of course, a regular fertilization program using a water-soluble fertilizer for flowering houseplants according to the label instructions.
