This was my 1st try at propagating African violets from a leaf , stated a few but this one did the best so far.

Do you have any tips for optimal results?

No tips mostly dumb luck, I do have them under florescent lights in my basement about 12 hrs on for the lights.

Might not be a "tip" per se, but I hadn't known African Violets took to fluorescent lights! I may have to try a similar setup, in my own basement. I have an African Violet that's doing okay, but I killed two or three to get this far, haha. I'd rather not see this beauty go! Big Grin

Thanks for the reply, @herrwood!
