African Violets are said to be the easiest house plant to grow.
After all, they are sold in just about every garden center, nursery,
grocery store and now in almost every retail store in America.
Why then, do we get so many questions on how to grow and bloom
these "easy to grow" plants?
Maybe they're not so easy? But wait.... Our grandparents grew these
plants and back then, they didn't have all that 'African Violet' potting
mix, African Violet fertilizer, African Violet self-watering pots, etc. Has
growing an African Violet gotten so complicated that now it's difficult
to grow one?
Have African Violets changed since my grandmother had one??...
The gal at the garden center told me one thing, and the guy at the
greenhouse told me something entirely different! Who do I believe
and What do I do??
The answer to these questions and much much more will be
answered in this section of our web site:
