Hi Everyone- I've been trying to propagate a few African violet leaves since the early summer. Several of them were put into pots in a potting mix with equal parts perlite & others I suspended above water so just the petiole was submerged. I have several of these leaves with beautiful, long roots so far, and one of them has a baby plant growing from the very very bottom of the petiole. I was concerned (yet very excited!) when I saw this, because I know how much those violet leaves detest getting wet, but I didn't know what to do with it.. I guess I didn't plan ahead very well! I have continued growing it in the water, for fear of suffocating or shocking the baby plant by transferring it into potting mix, yet I now see that 2 of the tiny little new leaves have turned to brown mush. I know I need to move it out of the water immediately, but I'm clueless as to how to go about this. I can not find ANYTHING on the internet, believe it or not, on this exact subject matter, so I am lost! I have rooted herbs in water then successfully moved them in to potting mix, but this is very different- it seems to be, at least. Since there's a new little plant attached to the base of the stem, I don't know how to transition this little guy. Would I place it in potting mix & give it lots of water for the first few days or week to help acclimate it to its new environment? Would I leave the baby plant attached to its mother leaf (I assume so because the leaf is still looking quite healthy)? Would I gently & lightly bury the baby plant under the potting mix, or just bury the roots- leaving the baby plant & mother leaf hanging out above the mix? I really don't want this one to die. It has taken many many months to grow to this stage & I plan on giving it to my mother as a gift, since my grandma always had African violets & they remind us of her so much. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
