WATERING & FERTILIZING:
African Violets like to have moist, not soggy soil, at all times. Do not allow plant to sit in water.
pink (shown), purple, lavender & some variegated colors
LIGHT CONDITIONS/GROWING AREAS:
African Violets are a bit finicky about light. To much light burns or discolors the flowers and leaves. If the light is to low, the African Violet won't bloom. African Violets prefer bright filtered natural light or artificial lighting. They can tolerate direct sun for short periods early in the morning or late in the day, with filtered natural light for the balance of the day.
OPTIMUM SOIL CONDITIONS:
Plant in loose fibrous potting mix. Keep plant moderately root bound. Remove wilted flowers and leaves to discourage root rot. Leaf petioles may rot from absorbing soluble chemicals where they touch the rim of a clay pot. If using clay or terra cotta cover pot with foil.
Possible pests are cyclamen mites, mealy bugs and aphids.
Warm - Prefers 70-75 days and 65-70 nights.
