Beautiful!!!!!!!!! I have looked at AF at walmart today. They are going to die because I kill them everytime I look at them.

RE: I can't find the thread.....

A lovely arrangement.

RE: I can't find the thread.....

Hi Linda,

Those are nice healthy violets. You're definitely doing something right.


African violets really are quite easy. Most people's downfall is watering them too often. If you ever have success with one, you will be hooked for life.


RE: I can't find the thread.....

fantastic !! have NEVER had luck with AV in terraria though I grow them with ease sitting on top lol My humidity runs over 80 percent even without a lid !!
So i get rot ,have had some luck with other gesneriads though gary

RE: I can't find the thread.....

Linda!!! How do you do it???????!

How do you make every plant I see you grow including these so beautiful!? You know my favorite one of the bunch, right?

Why do mine always start turning a soft brown at the edges and all die off no matter what I do? It's as if I buy them diseased....Botrytis comes to mind.:-(


RE: I can't find the thread.....

Hey Linda,

They really are beautiful! But also they looks so impeccably clean & well groomed, I am just awed by that.

I've dabbled in growing them for some years, I grow them OK, propagate them well & give to others to bloom (like my sister). Only now that I've bought some cheap ones just to enjoy the bloom, that I'm growing them better, on wicks.

Violets like yours are what I'd like to be able to grow Linda, really inspirational. Thanks for showing them to us.

RE: I can't find the thread.....
